"Taron Egerton embodies Elton with his pitch-perfect singing and captivating natural presence. With this performance and the overall film, it's hard to imagine a better tribute to such a singular icon." - Paste Magazine

"This fantastical take on musician Elton John is closer to the unconventional Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There than a straightforward chronicle, which is undoubtedly how the unconventional artist at its center wanted it to be. The story reshuffles reality, especially time and facts, and the film is more enjoyable for it.

The NY Cat Film Festival is very much its own animal. Tracie Hotchner, the festival’s founder, regards online pet videos with about as much enthusiasm as a cat might display for a week-old untended litter box. Her festival, now in its second year, features short films, ranging in length from two minutes to nearly an hour. They are made, she said, “with intelligence.”
