This comic tale is based on an actual event in 1970, when Elvis Presley (Michael Shannon) showed up at the White House to request a meeting with President Nixon (Kevin Spacey). Shannon portrays The King as a sincere, misunderstood and misguided character, while it’s Spacey who gets to satirize the President with hilarious results. The run-up to the encounter unfolds effectively, but isn’t especially funny. Actually, other than Spacey, there aren’t a lot of laffs. It’s more about quiet humor than big comedy. Still, this fictionalized version of what happened is fun to watch.
