Forty years after the death of Elvis Presley, a musical road trip across America in his 1963 Rolls Royce explores how a country boy lost his authenticity and became a king while his country lost her democracy and became an empire.
A worker at a Russian nuclear facility gets exposed to a lethal dose of radiation. In order to provide for his family, he steals some plutonium and sets out to sell it on Moscow's black market with the help of an incompetent criminal.

I recognized the name Jerry Weintraub but was not familiar with one detail of his life. Thanks to this documentary I feel I've met a fascinating and influential individual to whom I am, at the least, eternally grateful for believing in/producing one of my favorite films of all time, Diner.
Also, I'm not an Oceans fan or a huge Clooney fan, but OK, I get it now, the guy is hilarious and he and "Pitt" and "Cheadle" etc. must have had a complete boysclub blast making those movies and I gotta love them for just wanting to have fun. Fun is under-appreciated in today's world imo.
And another thing: Weintraub, his wife, and his girlfriend...in this era of idiotic self-centered TV hoes screaming and ripping each other's hair out over stupid and vapid child-men, it is refreshingly civilized to see three classy and mature individuals respect and admire each other enough to say "fvck it" to societal conventions and live as they please.
