BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (12A)
WHO wants to live forever? Freddie Mercury does in this crowdpleasing musical biopic, a greatest hits tribute blessed with a heartbreaking performance from
Rami Malek as the charismatic frontman, above.
Bohemian Rhapsody covers the 15-year period between guitarist Brian May (Gwilym Lee) and drummer Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy) welcoming Freddie as lead singer of their band Smile, and Queen’s triumphant 20-minute set at Live Aid in 1985. The film is bookended with an adrenalinepumping recreation of the Wembley Stadium charity concert, where Queen stole the show.
