Movie Info

Two stories of life in Great Britain's black community come together in this independent drama. In "The Suit," Tony is the father of a family of West Indian immigrants living in a London slum. Tony heaps verbally cruelty on his wife Marcia and browbeats his children into sharing his passion for Elvis Presley. Tony has even named his son Elvis, though the boy far prefers the work of Jimi Hendrix. Tony wants Elvis to become a pint-sized Presley impersonator despite the boy's wishes, and when he orders an Elvis costume for him, things come to a head. Later, "The Messiah" concerns a young man who strikes up an acquaintance with an older, wealthy man. The younger man begins to regard his new friend as the father he never had, and their relationship takes an unusual turn when the older man asks him a favor. The first feature from Kevin Aduaka, a British filmmaker born in Nigeria, Elvis Pelvis was screened in competition at the 2007 Berlin Film Festival.
