#190 – Bohemian Rhapsody and Shuffling the Facts

On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
While wildly popular with audiences, Bohemian Rhapsody, the latest Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic, is also gathering its detractors. There are a number of reasons, from historical inaccuracies, conveniences, and in the way in which it presents Mercury’s sexuality. We dive in, talk about the inaccuracies, and try to focus on the things that the film did do well. We also have the age-old discussion about the difference between a person and their art and how we engage both of those things.
