John McInerny, a real life Elvis impersonator, gives a staggering performance in this poignant story of a talented but delusional Buenos Aires Elvis impersonator who only feels truly himself when he dons the King s bejeweled clothes and performs for an adoring audience. He hates his dead-end factory job, insists everyone calls him Elvis though his real name is Carlos Gutierrez and is emotionally unavailable to his estranged wife and daughter Lisa Marie, who can t live inside his fantasies. Then an accident forces him to think of something other than himself. Director Armando Bo, a bold new talent, never mocks his deluded hero, allowing us to see the grandeur inside his mad dreams of glory.
