Priscilla Presley, the ex-wife of Elvis Presley, has shared her thoughts on Elvis, the forthcoming film about the life of her husband.

Directed by the Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, the film retells the often-complex relationship between the singer and his manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

Priscilla, 76, was shown the film in a private screening with Elvis’s friend Jerry Schilling, and took to Facebook to share her review.

“This story is about Elvis and Colonel Parker’s relationship,” she posted. “It is a true story told brilliantly and creatively that only Baz, in his unique artistic way, could have delivered.”

The actor playing her ex-husband, Austin Butler, was singled out for praise, with Presley calling his performance “outstanding.”

“Halfway through the film, Jerry and I looked at each other and said WOW!!! Bravo to him … he knew he had big shoes to fill. He was extremely nervous playing this part. I can only imagine.”

On Monday, Priscilla attended the 2022 Met Gala with members of the Elvis cast, posing on the red carpet with Butler.

Of Hanks’s portrayal of the charismatic but difficult Parker, Priscilla wrote: “What a character he was. There was two sides to Colonel; Jerry and I witnessed both.”
