After the roaring success of 'Bohemian Rhapsody', an other pop legend's life has been adapted to the big screen. How an introverted pianist kid has become one of the most extravagant performers on stage? Dexter Fletcher searches for the answer in his movie, following the early years of Elton John's incredible career.
Taron Egerton shines and sings in the leading role: he performs all the famous hits from 'Your Song' to 'Tiny Dancer' in person. (On the movie's soundtrack album he even sings a duet together with Elton John, who regards the young actor as a great pal: they have met previously at the shooting of 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'.) Though the pop legend controlled the shooting process personally, 'Rocketman' is far from being conservative: it is a bold, thrilling music biopic which doesn't try to conceal the artist's sexual orientation and his emotional unstableness leading to drug problems. The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May and has been received enthusiastically by the audience and the critics.
