This fantastical biopic on the life of flamboyant and charismatic musician Elton John follows his journey from humble beginnings living in a Middlesex council home with his parents to his growing passion for music as a young and very talented pianist, leading to his big breakthrough in America. However, the film does not shy away from depicting the singer-songwriter’s public struggles with alcohol, drugs and other addictions, while also touching on the impact of an LGBT pop star reaching fans across the world during a more conservative time. Of course, the film also includes a series of performances of Elton John’s endless musical hits performed brilliantly by Taron Egerton with all the stagecraft and vibrant costumes the star is known for.
