The story of a damaged individual trying to come to terms with themselves and their subsequent addiction is not a new story. However, not many of those folk live a life like Elton's. Producing hit after hit with Bernie like shelling peas.
This is a film first but a musical second, and what a score. Genuine goose bump moments, one hum dinger in a early first major performance.
A hell of a strong cast, with really too many to mention, the casting of Taron Egerton as Elton was genius.
This is a moving story, which flew past and really is as good as the reviews imo. Loved it, a really strong 8.
Elton's popularity will really expand with this. Get on it!
