The Peabody (with Lisa Gildehaus) (2011)
There is a legend that says if the ravens at the Tower of London ever leave, then the Kingdom of England will fall. You’d have to be pretty tired to mix those ravens up with the ducks at the Peabody Hotel and England with the King of Rock and Roll. In 1977. In August. Unfortunately for Elvis, that’s exactly what these five people have in mind. The King is dead. Long live the King.
