Rocketman Film Review

Adriana Sinicropi

Rocketman, the story of music legend Elton John, was nothing like we expected! While we knew we would get to hear some of Elton’s most famous songs including Rocketman and Your Song, we weren’t ready for the epic musical Director Dexter Fletcher gave us.

The film follows Elton, played by Taron Egerton, through his breakthrough years and transformation from a shy piano prodigy named Reginald Dwight into the singer and performer we know today. Egerton does a fabulous job in capturing everything that was so eccentric and extra about Elton, from his crazy glasses to his outrageous costumes. But, at the same time, it’s easy to see Elton was someone who struggled with drug abuse and just wanted his parents’ love, approval and affection. Elton’s character is both relatable and completely lovable.

The story took us on a roller coaster that was Elton’s life, making us laugh and even cry. This film will have you singing Elton John songs for the rest of the month — trust us — we haven’t been able to pull our earphones out our ears since its cinema debut!
