Movie Info

After the death of his wife, Byron (Jonathon Schaech) finds himself chronically depressed, so he decides to hop into his junk heap of a car and drive to Memphis. Along they way he picks up a hitchhiker (Harvey Keitel) in a pink jacket who informs Byron he's Elvis Presley and wants to go back home to Graceland. As one might expect, Byron is convinced this guy is a few doughnuts short of a dozen, but the closer they get to Memphis, the more he wonders if there isn't a bit of Elvis in him after all, especially after he picks up a beautiful Marilyn Monroe impersonator (Bridget Fonda). Priscilla Presley was an executive producer for this film, which features several scenes filmed inside Graceland.

Audience Reviews for Finding Graceland

Keitel is either a total genius or a complete hack. Fonda's impersonation is comical. Overall, the low production value kind of adds to it - it's the script that undermines the effort. Why the needless twists?

Wasn't all that impressed. You can't do an Elvis movie without Elvis or at least someone who looks relatively close to him.
