Suffering from a condition that makes him break out into maniacal laughter whenever he is anxious, Arthur's fragile mental state becomes unstable after he is told his funding for psychiatric support is going to be cancelled.

This biopic looks at the final years of one of Hollywood's most admired stars. Far from her cheerful and picture-perfect image, this film explores the hardships Judy Garland faced largely as a result of her fame as a child actor and traumatic early life.

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 to his big breakthrough in America.

It 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.
