Rocketman - Movie

Elton John's biopic. Wonderful. Loved listening to all the songs.
Boy wizard craving for the love of his father. Philandering mother, strict and distant father who never loved him. A supportive grandmother. An abusive gay relationship. A failed marriage with a woman. Alcohol, sex addicted Elton John trying to run away from himself dresses outlandishly on stage to be someone he is not. Then a dedication and life sobers down. The story of how he changed his name from the Elton Dean that he wanted as his stage name, which was already taken by his friend, so he adds John from John Lennon and becomes Elton John.
