The film has a 'text ending'. It reveals that Elton John has been sober for 28 years and counting (but still has a problem with shopping), has established a successful aids charity that has raised over $400 million for HIV/ aids sufferers, is still friends with Bernie Taupin and has never had an argument with him, has finally found proper love with his now husband David Furnish, and has retired from making music in order to focus on raising his two sons.

I have been waiting for weeks to the premier and Taron's performance blowed me away. I can't tell it was going for a movie about Elton John or going to a premier of a concert where Taron singing and performing and telling his life story from the screen (or from the stage cause it's a premier). His voice is precious, is emotional and is skillful. He got that powerful voice yet that soulful and soft that I am sure that he is the right person, the PERFECT person for those songs and for this film. Such a perfect actor, with a gifted voice.
His acting was outstanding and his eyes told things. I can felt his thoughts and feelings, his sadness, disapointment, his emptyness. Just, breathtaking.
And Jamie Bell did great, Richard Madden also, such a wonderful compilation of these three talented and professional actors.
Love their charisma and their chemistry together. Thank you very much for a great movie. Really enjoyed it.
