Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

Hardly strays from the generic biopic formula for the first half, hitting all the major notes in Queen’s rise to fame with plenty of concert montages (and in contrast, little substantial conflict). That said, the fact that I teared up at the redemptive reunion and final performance shows that that the character work is done extremely well along the way (Malek is great): Freddie is a fascinating, flawed character and his journey to find himself and his family (also well drawn) is a touching one.
