“I was quite young, but I still remember my father’s energy and his vibe,” said Lisa Marie Presley. “And Austin, he — what’s the word? — he nailed it.”

“In my life, it’s been one disappointment after another, in terms of people portraying my father,” she continued. “Bless their hearts, I’m sure they meant well.”

The movie opens worldwide on Friday, June 24.
