Takes an unknown true story and runs with it. Shannon and Spacey bring Elvis and Nixon to life without sacrificing the bizarre comedy of the situation. Their portrayals feel authentic, yet just slightly removed from reality in a way that makes their discussions fascinating and fun to watch. The story actually fleshes out these two characters, peppering in real-life eccentrics associated with the famous men making their actions highly believable. The end result is an oddly funny look into both personalities. Very enjoyable watch.
