George Michael: Freedom!
- Director's Cut

Director David Austin, George Michael
United Kingdom / 113 min. / 2018 / English (VOSE)

Narrated and co-directed by George Michael himself until the days leading up to his death, this film constitutes his honest and intimate testament in the form of a colossal video clip that flits between candour and tragedy.
The ill-fated pop superstar of the 80’s and 90’s dissects his youthful yearning for fame in the days of Wham! and the emotional wear and tear that followed his metamorphosis into a respected adult artist. He also chews the fat on his failed relationships, accusations of cultural appropriationism from the soul and R&B world, and the agonizing legal battle he waged against Sony. And, beside a turntable from which his greatest hits sound, Elton John, Liam Gallagher, Stevie Wonder, Ricky Gervais, Tony Bennett, James Corden, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, and a glittering carousel of celebrities, wax lyrical.
