Fearless Live Forever!
What a performance by Rami malek, just wow. He put so much heart in his performance trying to replicate that Freddy Mercury magic. Amazing acting by the rest of the actors, awesome cinematic shots taken that pull you to that 70s to 90s era. It was also interesting to see how some of Queens hit songs and albums came to be and how the music industy was back then. Fan of Queen or just good music in general? must watch.
Doesn't entirely avoid the usual music biopic traps: a slightly simplistic view of how music is created in the studio, some cheesy dialogue. But the performances are all spot on, and the music is infectious. A feelgood movie. It's not subtle or deep, but then neither were Queen.

"The only thing more extraordinary than their music is his story."
In 1970, Farrokh Bulsara, an Indian-British Parsi college student and baggage handler at Heathrow Airport, watches a local band who he has been following for a while, named Smile, perform at a nightclub. After the show, he meets Smile guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, and offers to replace their singer Tim Staffell, who has quit the band to join Humpy Bong. With the addition of bassist John Deacon, the band – now known as Queen – plays gigs across Britain until they sell their van to produce their debut album. Their musical style lands them a contract with EMI Records. At the same time, Farrokh legally changes his name to Freddie Mercury and becomes engaged to Biba store clerk Mary Austin. The Album hits the charts in America and during the band's U.S. tour, Freddie begins to question his sexuality.
