BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is a biopic drama which follows the life and music career of Freddie Mercury.

Sex

A man tells his girlfriend that she is an 'epic shag'. There are undetailed references to orgies and to a man having several lovers. A brief scene set in a gay club shows men wearing bondage gear.

Drugs

Lines of white powder are briefly seen lying on a table, and a man swallows an unidentified pill. Drug misuse is not condoned.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k') as well as milder terms including 'wanker', 'twat', 'bollocks', 'shit', 'bloody', 'arse', and 'screw'. Discriminatory language includes use of the terms 'paki' and 'fag', although such language is clearly not endorsed by the film.

A man slaps a woman's backside at a party and grabs another man between his legs; the behaviour is not condoned.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
