GRACELAND (2020) HollyShorts Film Festival

Ten year old Grace cuts her hair and takes to dressing like Elvis Presley. She is she says, the reincarnation of the King of Rock and Roll.

This is a lovely and funny little film about being who you really are as well accepting those around us for who they really are.

While the film can be a tad sitcomish, the emotion and the performances carry us past that. We really care about the people on the screen. While I know the film is currently playing in festivals, I’m left wondering about it’s future down the road. Will this become a proof of concept for a feature? It could work, though if that does happen I am hoping that the film loses some of the silliness.

A gem. Recommended

GRACELAND screens at Hollyshorts on November 11th. Details here
