Rated PG-13 for substance abuse, strong language, suggestive material and smoking.
What it’s about: A wild, manic, chopped-and-screwed biopic of the King of Rock 'n' Roll.
The kid attractor factor: The musical element, and perhaps star Austin Butler will draw younger audiences.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Capitalism and fame are a combination destined to chew you up and spit you out.
Violence: None of note, some scenes of wild teens nearly rioting, references to political assassinations.
Language: Some swearing
Sex: Suggestive moments and references.
Drugs: Use of pills, uppers, downers, smoking, drinking and other substances.
Parents’ advisory: This exuberant celebration of Elvis and his career goes to some dark places, but overall, it's a fitting tribute to the star. OK for older kids and teens.
