Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
