Based on a true fantasy, Rocketman showcases the formative years of Sir Elton John’s musical career, featuring all the excess and glamour the star is known and loved for.


Full Synopsis

Emerging onto the musical scene as a promising talent at the Royal Academy of Music, Elton John (Taron Egerton) is keen to make his mark.

When he’s spotted by music manager John Reid (Richard Madden), he feels ready to hit the dizzy heights of stardom. His whole life has been working towards this: the stage, the glamour, the music. However, Elton doesn’t quite realise just how different things will be now – and it’s too late to ever go back.

As his status begins to rise, Elton parties hard, abuses alcohol, and begins to question his own sexuality, all amid a straining relationship with his mother (Bryce Dallas Howard).

There are moments in a rock star’s life that define who he is – and with his formative years sculpting his future, Elton John needs to decide who he wants to be.
