QUICK TAKE:
Musical: While in AA, a world-famous musician recounts his early days, rise to success, and then battles with his various addictions.
PLOT:
Arriving at an AA meeting, world-famous musician Elton John (TARON EGERTON) admits to his various addictions and then begins to recount his tale, including being a young musical prodigy named Reginald Dwight with an emotionally distant father, Stanley (STEVEN MACKINTOSH), and a hot and cold mother, Sheila (BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD). Years later, and upon meeting songwriter Bernie Taupin (JAMIE BELL), Elton flourishes, with local record producer Dick James (STEPHEN GRAHAM) getting the work of the two noticed.

With one of Dick's workers, Ray Williams (CHARLIE ROWE), accompanying them, they head off to Los Angeles where they make a big splash, including eventually impressing record producer John Reid (RICHARD MADDEN) who steals Elton away from Dick while also becoming Elton's lover. But Elton's growing fame results in a growing addiction to booze and drugs, all of which threatens to derail his career and his various personal and professional relationships.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those who are fans of Elton John mostly likely will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For language throughout, some drug use and sexual content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
