Rocketman is an epic musical fantasy (a better description than “biopic”) about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years at the Royal Academy of Music through roughly 1972 and 1973 when "Honky Château" and "Goodbye Yellowbrick Road" debuted.

Rocketman stars Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard and was directed by Bohemian Rhapsody's Dexter Fletcher – read my interview with Fletcher here.

Catch Rocketman in theaters May 17, 2019.
