Storyline

Groomed by her overly ambitious mother, Anabelle is on the road to winning the Miss Texas Rose tiara when she dies tragically during a pageant. Her death lands her on the embalming table of Elvis, an embittered young man whose sense of family duty and love for his ailing father keep him from following his dreams. When Anabelle is miraculously resurrected on Elvis' embalming table, the two unexpectedly connect and sparks fly. 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

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!
