As flashy and colorful as it's subject, this musical biopic chronicles the early life and career of Reginald Dwight, better known to the world as Elton John (played brilliantly by Taron Egerton). Visually stunning performances of some of Elton's best-loved songs are used to tell the story of a rise to rock and roll greatness that includes addiction, depression and complex personal and professional relationships.

"Dexter Fletcher’s dazzling rock opera is a fantastical account of the highs and lows of Elton John’s wild-ride rise, told in frenetically full-blooded musical form. It’s the story of a little boy who became a big star while plaintively pleading “I want lurrve, but it’s impossible”; a shy kid (an “introverted extrovert”) who must learn to play-act confidence after enduring a childhood that would have struck a chord with Philip Larkin. Yet unlike the problematically rejigged chronology of Bohemian Rhapsody (which Fletcher rescued from disaster), this proudly nonlinear treat puts its jukebox soundtrack on shuffle, wittily deploying tunes to fit the mood rather than the timeline. The result is a riotous fact-meets-fiction swirl, all tied together by a barnstorming central performance from Taron Egerton." The Guardian
