Updated 6 Sep 2019 52.9k views14 items

The Elton John biopic Rocketman is a surrealist attempt to capture the wild, manic life of one of history's greatest musicians. The movie is undeniably powerful and visually captivating, but the question remains: Is Rocketman accurateRocketman presents itself as a musical film rather than a true historical account of Elton John's life and his romantic relationships, so the fact that there are a few Rocketman inaccuracies comes as no surprise. In some cases, the truth was stretched through casting choices or through the actors' portrayals of their real-life counterparts.

Of course, there are a few other key differences between Rocketman and reality. Though none of these differences really detract from the movie as a whole, Elton John's real life is perhaps even more interesting than the dramatized version portrayed in his biopic.
