MOVIE TIP

Bohemian Rhapsody

“Bohemian Rhapsody” hews closely to the traditional rock-band bio flick: rise to stardom, breakup over fame-related tribulations, a slide from music’s highest peak, then forgiveness and reconciliation. Two things give this tried-and-true formula a real kick in “Bohemian Rhapsody”: Queen’s wonderfully dynamic and theatrical music and Rami Malek’s charisma-fueled, Jagger-flecked portrayal of lead singer Freddie Mercury. I can't resist saying it: He. Will. Rock. You.
