Plot summary

What is Rocketman movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Rocketman" movie plot summary.

Dressed in a flamboyant devil's outfit, Elton John (Taron Egerton) enters an addiction rehabilitation session, recounting his life in a flashback ("The Bitch Is Back").
Reginald Dwight grows up in 1950s Britain, raised by his unaffectionate mother, Sheila (Bryce Dallas Howard), and more loving grandmother Ivy (Gemma Jones). Reginald is interested in music and hopes to perform for his father, Stanley (Steven Mackintosh), who takes no interest in his son ("I Want Love").
Reginald begins piano lessons, making his way into the Royal Academy of Music. Stanley abandons his family after Sheila has an affair. Reginald develops an interest in rock music and performs in local pubs ("Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting"). As an adult, Reginald joins the band Bluesology, which is hired to play backup for touring American bands, The Isley Brothers and Patti LaBelle and the Blue Belles ("Breaking Down the Walls of Heartache"). Isley Brothers lead singer Ronald Isley recommends Reginald write songs and put his old life behind him to become a famous artist. Reginald changes his name to Elton John (Richard Madden), Elton being the name of the saxophonist of Bluesology, and John being adopted from John Lennon.
Elton writes music and tries to find success with Dick James' record label DJM Records under the management of Ray Williams (Charlie Rowe). Williams introduces Elton to lyricist Bernie Taupin; they become friends and move into a flat to compose their songs ("Border Song"). When Elton admits he is homosexual, he ends his romantic relationship with their landlady, and he and Bernie are evicted.
