Behind the Candelabra

By DAVID WEINER

September 17, 2013

Michael Douglas and Matt Damon play against their big-screen personas to take on this flashy, dramatic true story of legendary entertainer Liberace -- and his outrageous lifestyle that was almost derailed by his tempestuous relationship with his young, live-in lover, Scott Thorson, during the late '70s and early '80s. Based on Thorson's tell-all memoir Behind the Candelabra: My Life with Liberace, the film is directed by Steven Soderbergh and co-stars Scott Bakula, Lowe, Paul Reiser and Debbie Reynolds. Special features include The Making of Behind the Candelabra, which explores the legacy of Liberace through costumes, sets, locations, and prosthetics with several cast and the crew members including Douglas and Damon.
