Filmmaker Jim Jarmusch weaves together three alternately comic and haunting stories of love, lost dreams, and Elvis’ ghost, one night at a rundown Memphis hotel. The night clerk (Screamin’ Jay Hawkins) and bellboy (Cinqué Lee) host a colorful array of characters: a teenage couple (Youki Kudoh & Masatoshi Nagase) making a pilgrimage to Sun Records from Japan, a widow (Nicoletta Braschi) escorting her husband’s coffi n to Italy, a girl (Elizabeth Bracco) fleeing her boyfriend (Joe Strummer), and three crooks in hiding. Features Rufus
Thomas, Tom Noonan, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Tom Waits, and a soundtrack of classic Memphis R&B!
