Rocketman (Cine Babies)

"Taron Egerton embodies Elton with his pitch-perfect singing and captivating natural presence. With this performance and the overall film, it's hard to imagine a better tribute to such a singular icon." - Paste Magazine

"This fantastical take on musician Elton John is closer to the unconventional Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There than a straightforward chronicle, which is undoubtedly how the unconventional artist at its center wanted it to be. The story reshuffles reality, especially time and facts, and the film is more enjoyable for it. In lieu of painting by numbers, director Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) and screenwriter Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) draw outside the lines, zigzagging through the memories of John (Taron Egerton) as he attempts to make sense of them during a 1990 stint in rehab. With his cavalcade of hit songs serving as narrative flash points, the movie feels much like a screen adaptation of a flamboyant stage musical. This makes sense on multiple thematic levels and from a creative standpoint: Hall also penned the book and lyrics for Billy Elliot the Musical, while John wrote the music. Like John's best-known earworms, the film is over-the-top, yet at the same time, infectious and endearing. With Richard Madden, Jamie Bell, and Bryce Dallas Howard." - Chicago Reader
