The new movie Rocketman tells Elton John's story -- from his childhood through the end of the '70s. But as with any biopic, there's bound to be questions regarding its accuracy. Below you'll read about what the filmmakers got right and wrong with what is known about the rock legend.
From the start, the movie has been marketed as an "epic musical fantasy," and in many ways it plays out more like a jukebox musical -- where an artist's catalog is used to develop character and further the plot -- than a traditional biopic. So, while some scenes suggest the creation or inspiration for songs ("Your Song," "Tiny Dancer"), others are choreographed to hits like "The Bitch Is Back," "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" and "I Want Love" that take the audience inside the characters' heads.
