A really excellent flick. I'd give it 4.5
Entire cast is strong. Guy from Downton Abby plays Freddies love interest.
Worth paying for on netflix

I really liked it as well. Which was odd since "Rock Star Biopics" is nowhere near my usual genre. The Live-Aid Concert at the end was like watching a real concert. I also got a kick out of the way that the scene duplicated the original so precisely. Out of curiosity, I googled footage of the original set that they did and the filmmakers copied every move, every nuance, right down to the Pepsi cups atop the piano.

Could they have shopped the old footage???? :o
