I went in with lowered expectation and came out pleasantly surprised. Another terrific performance from Florence Pugh and Chris Pine with a really nice supporting cast. While I didn't like it as much as Booksmart, I feel Oliva Wilde continues to grow as a filmmaker. It's beautifully shot with an affective score. While I have questions about the movies logic, it's not enough to deter my enjoyment.
Baz Luhrmann is not digging deep in his film, but he imbues it with an such energy and an infectious style that really won me over. It reminded me of Oliver Stone’s idol worship of Jim Morrison in “The Doors”. Tom Hanks is really good here but it’s Austin Butler who is unbelievable in the titular role. Elvis is such a tough role to play and Butler makes it look easy. He really blew me away.
