Yes. It is fabulous. No other word for it, unless that word is "glorious." Full Review

Refreshingly frank and undoubtedly entertaining, it doesn't even matter that it follows the general rhythm of many a biopic, as it features two fascinating and unforgettable lead performances. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Light but not slight, it is ultimately tender and sensationally acted, with both stars giving career-topping turns. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Perhaps Behind the Candelabra lacks depth of focus but nobody could complain of any lack of pure, unadulterated entertainment value. Full Review

Certainly an interesting film well played and a cautionary tale for those seeking fame and fortune or it's off cuts. Full Review

Although Behind the Candelabra may be Soderbergh's swan song, it's an uncanny resurrection of the creature that was Liberace. Full Review

Product Description:

Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh explores the relationship between flamboyant pianist Liberace (played by Michael Douglas) and his long-term partner, Scott Thorson (Matt Damon), in this Warner Bros. biopic based on Thorson's best-selling memoirs. An pianist with a playful flair for showmanship, Liberace was a beloved entertainer when, in the summer of 1977, he began a five-year love affair with the much-younger Thorson. Though on the surface the pair couldn't have seemed more different, the y quickly established an intimate bond that would take Thorson on a wild ride through the glamorous world of showbusiness while revealing a side of his talented older lover that few had glimpsed before. Rob Lowe, Dan Aykroyd, Scott Backula, and Debbie Reynolds co-star. A considerable hit when it premiered on HBO in May of 2013, BEHIND THE CANDELABRA impressed at the 2013 Emmy Awards by taking home trophies for Best Mini-Series or TV Movie, Best Actor in a Mini-Series or TV Movie (Michael Douglas), and Best Directing, Mini-Series or TV Movie.
