With electric camp and epic swagger, the early years of Elton John are brought to the screen for an anthemic sing-a-long.
Taron Egerton charms as the man once known as Reg Dwight, from his journey to unassuming prog-band keyboardist to bona fide pop royalty.

And don't stop him now! Dexter Fletcher, director of the smash Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is back behind the camera for this one.
