Rocketmen in Cannes

This year a musical took Cannes by storm. Rocketman was out of competition here but it certainly was the talk of the Croisette in the early days of the festival, bringing a bit of rock n’ roll glamour to the proceedings. That included a duet by Sir Elton himself and Taron Egerton for guests at the reception following the screening. Here is a taste as well as what Elton John and Bernie Taupin thought of the film.
