Storyline

A short, narrative film depicting a single day in the life of homeless, Iraq war veteran Olivia Sloane. After ten years of service and her final tour as an MP amid the dangerous, post-surge campaigns of 2007-08, she returned home to face even greater struggles. Abandoned by her husband (who also took custody of their young daughter) while Sloane was overseas, she survives hour to hour - living in her car, subsisting on a meager, disability benefit, looking for work in a recession. Better off than many homeless vets, so far avoiding substance abuse, Sloane is nevertheless a warrior now fighting an internal battle - the resilient soldier unable to reconcile the frail woman who suffers both from PTSD and common heartbreak. Written by D. Newhoff

a short narrative film that covers all the bases
14 November 2011 | by karubjSee all my reviews

This film does so much in such a short amount of time, giving us the story of a woman veteran in a way we haven't seen before. We might hear these stories as news bulletins, but now, seeing Olivia Stone and what she goes through in a single day, we are given real insight into her life and the lives of other women who serve our country. We feel fortunate to know her, and recognize the urgency of her need. Gone Elvis is beautifully told and the quality of the production, from the directing, the lighting and the wonderful actors is topnotch. I want to know more about this character and what happens to her. It would make a fabulous feature. Timely and important.
