Road tripping through America with the Rolls-Royce of ‘The King’

Forty years after the death of Elvis Presley, award-winning filmmaker Eugene Jarecki set out with the former Rolls-Royce of ‘The King’ between Memphis, New York, and Las Vegas to explore his influence on American society...

On Eugene Jarecki’s road trip through the United States, various famous Americans take a seat in the rear of the 1963 Rolls-Royce and divulge how Elvis Presley changed their lives, careers, and American society in general. Alec Baldwin, Rosanne Cash, and Chuck D are every bit as eloquent as Emmylou Harris, Ethan Hawke, Van Jones, and Mike Myer. If you’d like to pay a final tribute to the king of Rock ‘n’ Roll and explore what has become of the once-radiant ‘American Dream’, ‘The King’ is one not to be missed.
