Another chance to see this year’s hit epic musical fantasy about Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years.
Directed by: Ken Russell
Starring: Roger Daltry, Elton John, Tina Turner, Ann Margaret, Jack Nicholson, Oliver Reed
After witnessing the murder of his father, traumatised Tommy is left unable to see, speak or hear. From pinball champion to messiah, the adult Tommy (Daltrey) is accompanied on his journey by some of the most memorable visuals and performances in British cinema: Tina Turner as the Acid Queen; a towering Elton John in skyscraper boots; and Ann-Margret writhing in a deluge of chocolate and baked beans. Ken Russell’s intoxicating rock opera brings The Who’s music to life in this full-volume exploration of deluded leaders, consumer culture and religion.
