In December 1970, rock 'n' roll icon Elvis Presley travels to the White House to request a meeting with President Richard Nixon. This film tells the untold true story behind this revealing, yet humorous moment in the Oval Office forever immortalized in the most requested photograph in the National Archives.
It remains a naggingly slight experience: while its showbiz savvy should satiate the Elvis demographic, it feels at least a slight copout that a film where Nixon shares top billing should be so determinedly depoliticised.
The spectacle of Presley visiting Nixon's buttoned-down White House in his jeweled sunglasses, silk scarf, open shirt, and giant gold belt is inherently farcical, but Elvis & Nixon might have delivered more than dumb laughs.
As a surreal slice of history served up nearly half a century later, it feels oddly satisfying: A reminder not just of simpler times, but of all the other wild untold stories we may never know, just because no camera was there to capture them.
