Before Elvis, before Elton John, Madonna and Lady Gaga, there was Liberace - infamous pianist, outrageous entertainer and flamboyant star of stage and television. A name synonymous with showmanship and extravagance, he lit up every stage he performed on, as bright as his candelabras and with a unique flair that gained him millions of devoted fans across the globe.
In the summer of 1977, handsome young stranger Scott Thorson walked into Liberace's dressing room and, despite their age difference and seemingly different worlds, the two embarked on a secretive five-year love affair. To the outside world Scott was an employee, at most a friend, but behind closed doors his life with Liberace was an intense rollercoaster of hedonistic fun, flamboyance and excess.
Starring Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as Scott Thorson, Behind The Candelabra tells the fascinating true story of their glamorous life together and their tempestuous relationship - from the glitz and glamour of the early days in Las Vegas to their very bitter and public break-up.

I had wanted to go see this Movie at the Cinema but no one was interested in going and so I waited for the DVD to be released!It was such a wonderful story and at times I was drop down dead laughing so hard,in fact I watched it two nights running it was that good!Knowing this Movie was based on fact,I was aware of Liberace because of my Nans influence when I was a young Boy and I'd seen his old TV shows also with my wonderful Nan.His Life was fascinating and how the Man himself stayed in the closet for so many Years is a farce and very much a sign of the times in our not to distant past.Finally,the tradgedy of what occurred in the end and how that was tried being pasted over!A truly remarkable Film about a remarkable Human Being who happened to be simply Gay!
