With the help of each other and Elvis' father, they discover love, freedom and happiness as the real world and their own demons threaten to force them apart. Written by biggoldbird

Goofs

When Annabelle is eating breakfast in the kitchen of the funeral home, her pink hoodie is zipped up. When she steps out onto the porch a few moments later to go home, the pink hoodie is now completely unzipped and fully open. Just a few seconds later, once Elvis decides to let Annabelle stay at the funeral home for a while, he shows her to an upstairs bedroom, and as she looks in the closet her pink hoodie is once again fully zipped up as it had been before she started to leave the funeral home.

Wonderful movie
21 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to see Elvis and Annabelle at a screening in Los Angeles. I was captured by the uniquely beautiful and gritty Texas locations. The acting was terrific. Blake Lively really captured the innocence of first love and Max Minghella's performance had a brooding James Dean quality. A dreamlike atmosphere underlines this film, beautiful and disturbing, portraying love's many shades of dark and light. The writer-director has a very compelling story telling ability. One particularly poignant moment was when the red umbrella of the deceased father went drifting slowly across the field blown by the wind. The film was filled with many such moments. I recommend it!
