On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
Steven Mackintosh (who plays Elton's father) and director Dexter Fletcher both acted in Guy Ritchie's 1998 crime comedy 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels'. That film was also produced by Matthew Vaughn, whose production company MARV was also involved in the production of this film. See more »
Near the end of the film, it is implied that the song and music video for, "I'm Still Standing" depicts Elton celebrating having finally become sober and conquering his addictions. But he did not give up alcohol until after filming the music video; in fact, Andy Taylor of Duran Duran recalled getting drunk with Elton on martinis in Cannes during filming, and throwing a massive all-night party in which Elton's personal assistant's hotel suite was, "leveled." Waking up the next morning, a hungover Elton surveyed the damage and asked, "What happened?" The assistant replied, "You happened!," and Elton gave up alcohol shortly afterwards. See more »
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.

The story of a damaged individual trying to come to terms with themselves and their subsequent addiction is not a new story. However, not many of those folk live a life like Elton's. Producing hit after hit with Bernie like shelling peas.
This is a film first but a musical second, and what a score. Genuine goose bump moments, one hum dinger in a early first major performance.
A hell of a strong cast, with really too many to mention, the casting of Taron Egerton as Elton was genius.
This is a moving story, which flew past and really is as good as the reviews imo. Loved it, a really strong 8.
Elton's popularity will really expand with this. Get on it!
