Olatz López Garmendia,
Road movie about a man in despair over the death of his wife, who decides to go on a journey from New Mexico to Memphis to see Graceland in his beat-up junker with the driver's door missing. En route, he picks up a hitchhiker in a pink sports jacket who proclaims himself to be Elvis, who is trying to return home to Graceland. Initially trying to free himself of Elvis, he slowly becomes enamored with the man's capability to have influence over everyone around him including a state trooper who stops the vehicle. Bridget Fonda appears as a Mississippi casino Marilyn Monroe impersonator who helps Schaech out of his funk. Written by

This movie was one of the best movies i have ever seen! When I first rented the movie I thought it was going to be slow and have no plot at all, but as it turns out I realized that this movie was much more than critics said it was. The plot was excellent, the characters were great, especially Harvey Kietel he did a wonderful job playing the King of Rock n' Roll. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes Elvis, or who dislikes Elvis because this movie will most possibly change your mind! The movie also has a lot of values everyone needs to know in life. Not only is this movie about Elvis it is also about the famous Marilyn Monroe. This is one SPECTACULAR movie and I recommend everyone go see it now!!!
