Biopics can somewhat come across sanitize. As if we wanna see these individuals in the best light possible rather than actually experience the hell that they went through to end up where they are today. Rocketman is a different breed of film in that regard. It’s a fearless film which isn’t afraid to embrace the heaven as well as the hell of Elton John’s career. The film strongly depicts themes of mental health, drug addiction, self-worth vs self-loathing, the impact of words and more. It’s a strongly emotional film that we hope will create conversation on various mental health topics. Throughout the duration of this episode, we are strongly embracing our own journey throughout depression and Elton’s as well.
