315: Rocketman

Published 5 June 2019 Hosted by Katie Molloy and Melissa Savage

Hot on the heels of the mega-hit Bohemian Rhapsody, Elton John gets the movie musical treatment from uncredited Rhapsody (co-)director Dexter Fletcher and hot Welsh double threat Taron Egerton. Unlike that film, Rocketman takes a more fantastical approach, crafting a good old fashioned musical from Elton’s wonderful back catalogue. Unusually for a biopic, it also benefits from the involvement of its subject, who is not afraid to share the less filmic aspects of his life.
