BO­HEMIAN RHAP­SODY

Stars Rami Malek, Lucy Boyn­ton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy

Di­rec­tor Bryan Singer No in­tro­duc­tions are nec­es­sary for Queen, or its lead singer Fred­die Mer­cury (Rami Malek). “Bo­hemian Rhap­sody” chron­i­cles the band’s me­te­oric rise through their rev­o­lu­tion­ary songs, Fred­die’s sud­den solo ca­reer and fi­nally, their rec­on­cil­i­a­tion at Queen’s Live Aid per­for­mance in 1985. And no, his death will not be cov­ered in the movie as it won’t ex­tend after 1985. But the movie does shine a light on Mer­cury’s bi­sex­u­al­ity and his bat­tle with AIDS. Serv­ing as the pro­ducer on this movie is none other than Queen’s found­ing mem­bers Brian May and Roger Tay­lor, while Bryan Singer and Derex Fletcher—who re­placed Singer as di­rec­tor after he was dis­missed for clash­ing with the crew—serves as the di­rec­tor(s).
