Nenet Presents: El Último Elvis (The Last Elvis)
Most evenings in Buenos Aires, "Elvis" Gutiérrez is a star - his singing and stage presence bring back to life the King of Rock and Roll in all his glory. By day, though, Gutiérrez slaves away at a dead-end factory job and endures the scorn of his ex-wife; only his young daughter, Lisa Marie, brings any joy outside of his Elvis tribute gigs. Feeling more connected to his stage persona than to the world around him, Gutiérrez retreats from reality until a tragic accident forces him to grapple with his real-world responsibilities.

Armando Bo's feature debut, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, shows how performing on stage can bestow glamour and grace to the unlikeliest of people. With a jaw-dropping performance by real-life Elvis tribute artist John McInerney, this powerful yet tender film imbues its lead character with depth and dignity, creating a portrait of a broken man who seeks shelter in his dreams and singular talent.

"A knockout, riveting performance! John McInerney is utterly compelling."
-The Hollywood Reporter

"One of the 10 Best Music Films at Sundance! An emotion-laden and intense journey."
-Rolling Stone

"With the help of beautiful cinematography and deft camerawork, the film dares the borderlines of delusion and reality to be re-imagined into one man's definition of them."
-Highbrow Magazine

"John McInerney's performance is incredible. He has a great voice, but also just the way he moves and carries himself is expressive. This is a movie that's going to stay with me for a long time." -Pop Culture Beast
