Bohemian Rhapsody

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



In 1970, after listening to a gig by Smile, Farrokh Bulsara meets and is attracted to Mary Austin. He then offers himself as Smile's new singer. Together they play across Britain and Farrokh soon convinces the band to record an album. They attract EMI's attention. Farrokh then changes his name to Freddy Mercury and renames the band Queen. The band is managed by Paul Prenter, who is attracted to Freddy. They go on an American tour, after which Freddy proposes to Mary, but starts questioning his sexuality. In 1975, EMI refuses to release a single of Bohemian Rhapsody, so they quit, and the song becomes a hit. Freddy has an affair with Paul, and when Mary learns his homosexuality, she breaks the engagement but they remain close friends. Paul has a strong influence on Freddy who drinks, takes drugs, organizes wild parties and slowly drifts away from his friends. Paul eventually convinces Freddy to record a solo album in 1984 in Munich. Mary manages to convince Freddy that Paul is a bad influence and he fires him before coming back to England to play in the Live Aid benefit concert (Queen was invited, but Paul hid that fact from Freddy). Freddy reconciles with the band, learns he's got AIDS, tells the band, they play in Live Aid which is a big success. Freddie reconnects with Jim Hutton, whom he had hit on during a party many years earlier and who had told Freddy to find him when he learns self-acceptance.
