“Jarecki uses Elvis Presley’s career and influence to help us make sense of fame, power, corruption, self-destructive behaviour and pretty much all the other ills of the world.”~The Guardian

Aroview: Filmmaker Eugene Jarecki travels in a 1963 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud once owned by Elvis Presley and along his state-wide journey amasses a compelling thesis that correlates Elvis's singular career trajectory with that of the modern American Empire.

Brilliantly edited from literally miles of footage and many rarely-seen clips of Elvis in action, the Rolls picks up familiar strangers along the way like Alec Baldwin, Rosanne Cash, Ethan Hawke, John Hiatt, M. Ward, Emmylou Harris and Emi Sunshine, with additional alternative perspectives from the likes of Van Jones, Chuck D., and Mike Myers.
