I read the press reviews and they put me off. Sounds like I might be going after all. Thanks.
Wholeheartedly agree with the OP and subsequent happy viewers; we also went to see it this weekend and had some reservations about the portrayal prior to attending as we are avid queen (and Freddy) fans; but it was so much better than I had anticipated. I too would buy the DVD when/if it gets released, and support an Oscar recommendation. A couple of the songs were slightly out of time sequence, artistic timing I expect, but did not detract from my complete enjoyment of the film. Definitely a recommended watch if you are of a certain age, and even if you aren't, it's still great viewing.
Heard Brian May on the radio say .. finally a worthwhile tribute to Freddie.
Will be going.
We saw the film this afternoon. It was a very enjoyable film and worth the entry fee just for the Live Aid concert sequence.
Great film - fantastic acting, excellent music, providing an emotional range from musical ecstasy to sorrowful tears, and food stamping hand clappingly good.
His was a sad life but he brought happiness and joy to millions - i may go again... i hope its up there in the awards list at the appropriate time.
There is a sweet irony I think that as a youngster mocked and bullied for his dental features yet used it to his advantage once fame graced his door
It is also perhaps no coincidence that arguably the most successful male artist in recent years Robbie Williams states Freddie was his idol for showmanship and happy to admit a role model and significant influence in his own career,
