On a December morning in 1970, the King of Rock ‘n Roll showed up on the lawn of the White House to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Nixon.
Starring Academy Award-nominee Michael Shannon as Elvis Presley and two-time Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey as Richard Nixon, comes the untold true story behind this revealing, yet humorous moment in the Oval Office forever immortalized in the most requested photograph in the National Archives.
“Elvis & Nixon” is one of those movies to watch for fun it’s about a serious matter in a serious time, yet the film doesn’t try to take it to serious.
And the lead performances are spot on really making it a watch over the story. Michael Shannon is right dead on as Elvis Presley and Kevin Spacey is in top notch form as Richard Nixon even right down to his accent and tone.
And if you don’t know: this film is based on a true story.
