Synopsis
Starring Blake Lively (from the hit TV show, GOSSIP GIRL), ELVIS AND ANABELLE is a romantic fantasy in the tradition of GHOST about the power of love that knows no bounds. Groomed by her overly ambitious mother (Mary Steenburgen), Anabelle (Blake Lively) is on the road to winning the Miss Texas Rose tiara when she dies tragically during a pageant. Her death lands her on the embalming table of Elvis (Max Minghella), an embittered young man, whose sense of family duty and love for his ailing father (Joe Mantegna) keep him from following his dreams.
When Anabelle is miraculously resurrected on Elvis' embalming table, the two unexpectedly connect and sparks fly. With the help of each other and Elvis’ father, they discover love, freedom and happiness as the real world and their own demons threaten to force them apart.
Just when it seems they have left all their worries behind, the world finally catches up and forces them apart. Tragedy strikes again and the star crossed lovers are left alone to question their lives and choices. In the end they must face their own demons before they are able to realise that for every tragedy there’s a miracle waiting to happen.
