elvis and nixon

The tall story behind a meet-and-greet between two American icons.

Friday 15 – Monday 18 July

Running time: 1h26m

On a December morning in 1970, the King of Rock ‘n Roll turns up on the doorstep of the White House to meet the most powerful man in the world with the bizarre request of being made a federal agent. A farcical scramble ensues as entourages on both sides coordinate a meet-and-greet. With the two icons played by Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey respectively, director Liza Johnson weaves an imagined story from behind the Oval Office doors, capturing a pre-Watergate moment in time when America had both a King and a President.  

Director Liza Johnson Cast Michael Shannon, Kevin Spacey, Alex Pettyfer, USA 2016, 1h26m, 15
