Our Oscar Series continues with Part III, Elvis. Baz Luhrmann’s musical biopic drew polarizing responses from both movie fans and Elvis fans. On one hand, Austin Butler’s performance is great, and very Oscar worthy. At the same time, Luhrmann’s verry stylized approach somehow seems shallow and a bit too much, all at once. We have a heated discussion.
To pair, we drink some delicious Washington Merlot. For this series, I’m offering some of the wines that made me love wine, all those years ago.
