WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

On December 21st 1970, rock-and-roll icon Elvis Presley (Shannon) shows up at the White House to request a meeting with President Richard Nixon (Spacey). His request is granted, and soon two of the most powerful men in the world are together in the same room…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Based on the amazingly true story of what is now one of the most requested photos in the US National Archive, Elvis & Nixon is a bizarre and often hilarious retelling of what really went down when the King of Rock and Roll met the President of the United States.
