Rocketman Warning

Hello! I just want to mention that Rocketman is an amazing film and I love it, but it definitely is a 15 and over.

I’d watch it again and again for the singing and acting, but there are many sex scenes including gay, drug taking, swearing, overdosing, etc. It’s not sanitised like the Freddie Mercury film. As Elton told the film makers… he’s not lived a PG13 life!

Hope it’s ok to mention. Don’t not show it, because wow! But I’d recommend a disclaimer as kids sometimes come with their parents.

A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate fish out of water as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton) who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he’s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he’s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.

Certificate 12

Guardian**** “Corny it may be –but this gentle, sweet-natured comedy has warmth and a certain X factor of likability, helped by big-hearted performances from a cast including Daniel Mays and Tuppence Middleton. It’s inspired by the true story of the Fisherman’s Friends, an all-male a capella folk singing group from Port Isaac in Cornwall who in the noughties became an unexpected hit for their authentic sea shanties.
