Charting Elton John’s meteoric rise to stardom, followed by his descent into depression and addiction, Rocketman is an impressionistic vision of rock 'n' roll myth-making. Scripted by Lee (Billy Elliot) Hall, the film’s heart and soul is provided by a stunning and exuberant performance from Taron Egerton as Elton John.
