Watch Online | Independent Lens: The King

Last Updated by Dale Fisher on

Far more than a musical biopic, The King is a snapshot of America at a critical time in the nation’s history. Tracing Elvis’ life and career from his birth and meteoric rise in the Deep South to his tragic and untimely end in Hollywood and Las Vegas, The King covers a vast distance across contemporary America, painting a parallel portrait of the nation’s own heights and depths, from its inspired origins to its perennial struggles with race, class, power, and money.
