Bohemian Rhapsody (Sing-Along Version!)

Bohemian Rhapsody (Sing-Along Version!)

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek, in his Oscar-winning, career-defining performance). Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. Also starring Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazello, Aiden Gillen.

“Malek does an impressive job of re-creating Mercury’s moves onstage, but the core of the performance is Malek’s intensely thoughtful, insight-rich channelling of Mercury’s hurt, his alienation and isolation even at the height of his fame.” (New Yorker)

“As for Freddie Mercury, is this his real life? Is this just fantasy – not sure that really matters either. When Malek’s strutting like a peacock, this movie is a decently amusing escape from reality.” (NPR)
