What is the Boy George movie about?

In an interview, Boy George, 58, has admitted his movie will be a lot more rock and roll in comparison to Elton John and Queen’s movies.

Director Sasha Gervasi said: “George has thrived on his authenticity, the fact he has been so ruthlessly, almost alarmingly honest. I think the film has to reflect that.

“It’s a little bit tougher, the Boy George story, a little bit less polished.”
