Average Elvis-themed '50s flick.
This movie isn't too bad, but a tad boring. It's mostly set in a country setting where children have to make their own entertainment without TVs and CD players in the '50s. It's very Elvis themed with lots of songs and a little girl (Dakota Fanning) who's pretty much obsessed with him and his music while living with her grandma and dad trying to cope with her mother leaving. When there's a concert in town, she gets offered tickets by a couple of boys who have more in mind than just seeing her sing. Her life seems to fall apart from there on. Sexual content has a young girl removing her clothes for some boys (nothing shown), then getting raped which shows her face and hands and a few screams. Skimpy outfits. A girl has a first kiss with her best guy friend. Violence includes the rape scene, a man gets hit by lightening that changes his life forever, snakes bites and gun shots, a dog getting killed. Language is very mild for our time but "bad" in the 50's with racial words and a few other common name calling. Smoking by adults and kids. I would not recommend this for children under 15.
