‘Emma’ star’s new David Bowie biopic movie ‘Stardust’ has been released online

Stardust has skipped a release in US cinemas and is now available to watch online!

Set in the 1970s, the biopic stars British musician and actor Johnny Flynn (Vanity Fair) as iconic English singer-songwriter David Bowie.

Flynn played George Knightley in the recent movie adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma.

Stardust was originally scheduled to come out last year, but its release was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Fortunately, it’s now been made available digitally instead and you can watch it on Amazon Prime Video now!

The official synopsis reads: “David Bowie is one of the most seminal legends in music history; but who was the man behind the many faces?

“In 1971, a 24-year-old fledgling David Bowie is sent to America to promote his newest record, The Man Who Sold the World.

“Leaving behind his pregnant wife Angie, Bowie and his band embark on a makeshift coast-to-coast promotional tour with struggling Mercury Records publicist Rob Oberman.”

Widely acknowledged as one of the 20th century’s most influential musicians, David Bowie was born in London in 1947 and died in January 2016 at the age of 69 in New York City.

Johnny Flynn can also be seen later this month in Netflix’s 1930s drama The Dig, alongside Lily James, Carey Mulligan, and Ralph Fiennes.

The online release of Stardust follows a similar strategy as Misbehaviour, Ammonite, and Mr Jones in recent months.

Stardust is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
