Elvis (out Jun 23) is a wide encompassing biopic directed by Australian Baz Luhrmann. I was lukewarm about the opening hour – it’s a torrent of sound and visuals with barely any time for meaningful conversations. The film settled in the second-half and, thanks to a wonderful lead performance from star Austin Butler, provides audiences with more insight into his talent as well as his strengths and weaknesses. Grade: B.
