Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, its music and its extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most loved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through its iconic songs and revolutionary sound, its near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and its triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid. Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music, in the process cementing the legacy of a band that was always more like a family and which continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music-lovers to this day.
‘The music sequences in this drama (especially the Live Aid performance) are electrifying, and Malek is magnetic…’
