In the film’s boldest conceit, some of Elton’s most exultant tunes, including ‘I want love’ to ‘Candle in the wind’ and ‘I’m still standing’, have their contexts touchingly reimagined as they make their way into the narrative.

Rocketman

  • Direction: Dexter Fletcher
  • Actors: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell
  • Rating: 4/5

Close on the heels of the smash-hit Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, here’s another mega-musical extravaganza about a British rock star and gay icon, Elton John.

Aptly described as a “true-life fantasy” by director Dexter Fletcher (also the un-credited director of Bohemian Rhapsody), Rocketman charts the formative years of the music-man’s career.

Born Reginald Dwight, the shy young piano prodigy changed his name to Elton Hercules John and made himself over as a flamboyant showman with a penchant for outlandish outfits — from jackets, hats and shoes each in a different vivid colour to his trademark, eye-popping spectacles (that often matched the jacket!).
