The unlikely transformation of awkward suburban piano prodigy Reginald Kenneth Dwight into flamboyant megastar Sir Elton Hercules John provides the plot for this latest musical biopic. With a superb central performance from the always reliable Egerton, expect plenty of sex, drugs, fantasy sequences, a cavalier approach to historical veracity and all your favourite tunes. If you love Watford FC’s biggest fan, this one’s for you.

★★★★★ “Taron Egerton is terrific as the singer, but the real star of this electric biopic is director Dexter Fletcher… whose enthusiasm for musical storytelling shines through every frame, hitting all the emotional high notes. I have yet to come down.” – Mark Kermode, The Observer
