Behind The Candelabra
Outrageous entertainer and flamboyant pianist whose stage and television career spanned 40 years, Liberace (Academy Award winner Michael Douglas) lived lavishly and embraced a lifestyle of excess. In the summer of 1977 handsome young Scott Thorson (Academy Award winner Matt Damon) walked into his dressing room and, despite their age difference and seemingly different worlds, the two embarked on a secretive five-year love affair. Behind The Candelabra captures the essence of Liberace's appeal while taking a behind-the-scenes look at their tempestuous relationship. The film also features an all-star supporting cast that includes Emmy and Academy Award nominee Dan Aykroyd, Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Scott Bakula, Golden Globe nominee Rob Lowe, and Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Debbie Reynolds.
