Bohemian Rhapsody (12A)
A foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury.
Rami Malek delivers a standout performance as Mercury, who 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, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid. On that occasion Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, led the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. That performance cemented the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
The film has received multiple awards, including four at the 91st Academy Awards – for Best Actor (Rami Malek), Best Film Editing, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing, making it the film with the most wins at the ceremony.
Bohemian Rhapsody won Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor (Motion Picture Drama) and Best Motion Picture (Drama) and BAFTAs for Best Actor in a Leading Role and Best Sound.
