Movie Info

Opposites attract in a truly unexpected way in this offbeat romantic comedy from Brazilian filmmaker Marcelo Laffitte. Elvis (Simone Spoladore) is a photographer living in Rio de Janeiro who is trying to get her career off the ground. Elvis's family are having money troubles, and since her work isn't bringing in much money, she takes a part-time job delivering pizzas to earn some cash on the side. One evening, Elvis delivers a pizza to Madonna (Igor Cotrim), a drag performer at a local nightclub who is being attacked by Johnny Tripod (Sergio Bezerra), Madonna's sleazy sometime boyfriend. Elvis immediately comes to Madonna'a rescue, and the two become fast friends. Before long, they find that they're strongly attracted to one another, but since Elvis is a lesbian and Madonna is a gay man, they're both thrown for a loop by their new love. As the new couple tries to make sense of their relationship, Elvis wants to raise the money to help her dad while Madonna dreams of finding a backer for a spectacular new show. Elvis and Madonna received its North American premiere at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

You just don't see a tender lesbian/pre-op coupling every day, and if these two can become a functioning couple, then maybe the rest of us can, too.

Audience Reviews for Elvis & Madona


This love story between mtf transgender Madona (yes, only one n!) and her lesbian girlfriend Elvis is definitely not something we see on the big screen every day. While the material is welcome (and necessary even), it would have really helped if the film was not so hugely influenced by the telenovela format and treated its characters with a bit more dignity and its plot with a little less hurry. The cast does not always convince and Maitê Proença's guest appearance is indeed funny but only because it is so awful. The soundtrack is spot on and almost saves the day. Almost.
