" The liberation of a rock star who has found himself by leaving himself behind. An irresistible glam-rock Green Book. "
" Johnny Flynn aces the vocal requirements of the role and brings layers of vulnerability as he hints at the complex brilliance that would drive a celebrated five-decade career in music. "
The Hollywood Reporter
" A revelatory road-trip, beautifully built, and fittingly fiery for both casual fans and hardcore Bowiephiliac. "
" STARDUST artfully builds on Bowieâ€™s worries with a distinctly personal edge. A graceful, winning performance from Johnny Flynn. "
