Dir. Dexter Fletcher. UK/USA, 2019. 2h 1m. Starring Taron Egerton, Richard Madden, Jamie Bell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Tate Donovan, Stephen Graham.

Lavish musical biopic following shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight’s transformation into international superstar Elton John. Taron Egerton steps into Elton’s sparkly, platform boots for this gleeful feast of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll celebrating the rise of one of the UK’s most endearing and outspoken pop stars.

‘For me, Fletcher is the real star of this show, a director whose enthusiasm for musical storytelling shines through every frame, hitting all the emotional high notes. I have yet to come down.’ ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer

‘Dexter Fletcher's fabulous Elton John musical is a heart-racing, toe-tapping, all-glitter-cannons-blazing triumph...’ ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
