The biography follows singer Freddie Mercury from when he joins the band Queen in 1970 to the band’s triumphant concert at Wembley Stadium for Live Aid in 1985. Rami Malek delivers a powerhouse, Oscar-winning performance as Mercury; the film grabbed four Academy Awards in total.
“Deftly tweaking the tropes of rock biopics, this drama of singer Freddie Mercury and British hitmakers Queen dazzlingly captures an era, a man, and the universal quest for identity” (Film Journal International).
