Rocketman (15) 121mins

An epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years.

The film follows the fantastical journey of transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John. This inspirational story - set to Elton John’s most beloved songs and performed by star Taron Egerton - tells the universally relatable story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture.

Directed by Dexter Fletcher, Rocketman stars Jamie Bell as Elton’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as Elton’s first manager, John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother Sheila Farebrother.

Produced by Elton John, David Furness, Matthew Vaughn and David Reid.

 

'Dexter Fletcher's fabulous Elton John musical is a heart-racing, toe-tapping, all-glitter-cannons-blazing triumph...'  *****The Telegraph

'It finds strength in texture, beauty in sadness, and an inspired finale in a crackpot arrangement of one of the singer's greatest hits' ***** The Times

'Taron Egerton, in a fantastic performance, doesn't impersonate Elton John, he becomes him; he doesn't lip-sync, he sings, making the songs matter in that moment in the story'  *****London Evening Standard

'It finds strength in texture, beauty in sadness, and an inspired finale in a crackpot arrangement of one of the singer's greatest hits'  *****The Times

'A sequin-encrusted delight. On paper it reads like a by-the-book biopic; on screen it explodes with the kind of colour and energy that only Elton John himself could invoke' ****Empire

'Rocketman – in which Taron Egerton gives a humdinger of a lead performance – is a visual spectacular, as flamboyant as young Reginald Kenneth Dwight himself became after he turned into Elton Hercules John. It’s a simply wonderful film' ***** Daily Mail
