Am not really a fan of Queen but thought the film might be interesting,given the extravagant lifestyle of the lead singer.
I wonder if Freddie would have recognised himself? I doubt it. This came across as an old- fashioned Hollywood biopic: hilarious scene of Freddie with first lover shows him on top of her with lower body covered ,and her with blanket wrapped around most of her naked body ( Doris Day would have been proud) ; the homosexuality and excesses of his famous partying are presented as if to say,as the Guardian so wittily put it " he got in with the wrong crowd".
I guess they were aiming to make this a family friendly film......but what would a parent say to the child who asks " Why did Freddie and that man look at eachother in such a strange way as the man was going into the men's toilet?" - a fair question since the film steers clear of any explanation!
Disappointingly santised story.
