Directed by Dexter Fletcher.
Starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard, Steven Mackintosh, Gemma Jones, Stephen Graham, and Tate Donovan.
Based on the early life of legend Sir Elton John, this compellingly, uplifting musical biopic, starring Taron “The Kingsman” Egerton, charts key moments during his meteoric rise, melancholic fall, and momentous comeback.
From its opening scene Dexter Fletcher’s dazzling and emotive fantasy hooks you like one of Elton’s many classics; bursting through the door in full flamboyance, we see that instantly recognisable icon, then a beat later the broken soul behind this brilliant showman is cleverly unveiled.
Taron gives his all as the glam bespeckled superstar, singing with passion and conviction and sharing every beat of Elton’s unique heart, from the frenetic pace of his effervescent performances to the slow unvarnished agony of his many inner demons.
Rocketman displays that under the sparkles,
