Sofia Coppola's biographical drama "Priscilla" fails to capture the essence of Elvis Presley's music due to the denial of rights to his songs. The film tells the story of Priscilla Beaulieu, who was 14 when she met the 24-year-old Presley. The film explores their relationship and portrays Elvis as controlling and possessive.
