During its run, Elvis & Madonna has screened at over 30 film festivals, including Tribeca, Frameline, the Los Angeles Brazilian Film Festival, Montreal Image + Nation, and Philadelphia QFest.
In Copacabana, lesbian photographer Elvis is hired to deliver pizzas in the night shift on her motorcycle. Her first assignment is a delivery to the transvestite hairdresser Lady Madonna. When Elvis arrives at Madonna’s apartment, she discovers that her client has been beaten up and robbed by her lover João Tripé.
Elvis befriends Madonna, who invites Elvis to photograph her performance in a nightclub. Before long, the two fall in love and move in together. But Elvis’ decision to sell incriminating photos of João Tripé may come back to haunt her and Madonna as he promises revenge.
Elvis & Madonna swept the 2012 Foreign Press Correspondent Association Awards, picking up Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best People’s Choice Picture.
