Elvis & Nixon was a pretty entertaining look at what possibly transpired between them that day in 1970
Since I knew this movie only had two showings today which I interpreted as being gone by this Friday, I told my movie theatre-working friend I definitely wanted to watch this one this week. So we did, and I-and perhaps he-were fascinated by all the depictions of what might have possibly been discussed between The King of Rock 'n' Roll and the 37th President of the United States that day on December 21, 1970. There's also some partly interesting stuff involving some of Nixon's staff and Elvis' friends who come with him to Washington, D.C. Certainly, there's also some pretty funny stuff involving some of the young adult females and how they react when seeing the popular singer arriving toward them. I mean, Michael Shannon as Presley and Kevin Spacey as Richard Milhous are entertaining to watch when they are together. So on that note, I say give Elvis & Nixon a look.
