Riley Keough, granddaughter of Elvis, was able to watch the film with  Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley, describing it as a “very emotional experience."

“In the first five minutes, I could feel how much work Baz and Austin put into trying to get it right. That made me emotional immediately,” Keough said.

“I started crying five minutes in and didn’t stop. There’s a lot of family trauma and generational trauma that started around then for our family. I felt honored they worked so hard to really get his essence, to feel his essence. Austin captured that so beautifully.”
