‘Priscilla’ Movie
The official trailer for Sofia Coppola's 'Priscilla' has been released. Sofia Coppola is taking on Priscilla and Elvis Presley’s relationship in her new film Priscilla. The first trailer for the film was released on June 21 and has that signature Sofia Coppola style.
Cailee won the Volpi Cup for Best Actress for her performance.
She had her first major role in 2018’s Pacific Uprising.
“The character goes from the age of 15 to 27 over the course of the film, so she had to be able to act and age across a big span of time,” the director told Vogue.
“It was really important for me to have the same actress playing Priscilla at those different stages of her life, and I think Cailee can pull it off. She’s such a strong actress, and she also looks very young.” Jacob Elordi plays Elvis Presley in Priscilla.
He’s also set to star in the film On Swift Horses with Daisy Edgar-Jones and Will Poulter.

“It’s very difficult to sit and watch a film about you and about your life and about your love,” she told reporters in a press conference.
