Dexter Fletcher’s (Bohemian Rhapsody, Sunshine on Leith) raucous history of Elton John’s incredible career explores his early life – from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through to his influential, enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell).
Co-produced by the superstar himself and packed with his beloved songs – Rocketman stars Taron Egerton (displaying a jaw-dropping musical talent as he sings everything himself) as Elton John, alongside a fabulous supporting cast including Bodyguard star Richard Madden as Elton’s manager John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s proud mum.
Dir: Dexter Fletcher
