With electric camp and epic swagger, the early years of Elton John are brought to the screen for an anthemic sing-a-long.

Taron Egerton charms as the man once known as Reg Dwight, from his journey to unassuming prog-band keyboardist to bona fide pop royalty. With the help of his mother (Bryce Dallas Howard), lyricist Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell) and manager John Reid (Richard Madden), we see the rise of one of the Twentieth Century’s true musical icons.

And don’t stop him now! Dexter Fletcher, director of the smash Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is back behind the camera for this one.

“It finds strength in texture, beauty in sadness, and an inspired finale in a crackpot arrangement of one of the singer’s greatest hits.” ★★★★★ – Times

“Rocketman is an honest, heartfelt tribute to Elton John’s music and his public image.”★★★ – Guardian

“It’s largely to the credit of star Taron Egerton, who leans fearlessly into the role’s wild excesses, that the movie remains airborne.” – Hollywood Reporter
