Hit the road in Elvis Presley’s 1963 Rolls-Royce and join award-winning filmmaker Eugene Jarecki (The House I Live In, Why We Fight) on a musical road trip across America. Much more than a simple tribute to the King, this ambitious documentary looks at his rise and fall as a metaphor for the changing country he left behind, and the transformation of the American Dream all the way up to the age of Trump. From Memphis to New York to Las Vegas, and featuring appearances from Rosanne Cash, Chuck D, Emmylou Harris, Ethan Hawke, Mike Myers and more, The King is a rich and moving portrait of America and one of its greatest icons.
