Moving film about a down-on-his-luck Elvis impersonator.
21 November 2004 | by (New York,NY USA) – See all my reviews

I just loved this bittersweet film about a down-on-his-luck Elvis impersonator who plans his big comeback at a small-time seedy Hollywood night club.

The film has a supporting cast of equally touching characters who are clearly just barely existing on the fridges of the Hollywood show business community.Yet despite this sad state of existence there is a inner dignity to Eddie Presley and the other characters that is touching and wonderfully uplifting.

If you like movies about show business and especially that of show business in Hollywood, then this film is definitely worth a look.
