As glittering and outrageous as Liberace himself, released on DVD and Blu-Ray on 14th October 2013 courtesy of Entertainment One, Behind the Candelabra takes a look at the flamboyant entertainer's private world, focusing on his tempestuous relationship with Scott Thorson, his young live-in lover for five years.

Based on Thorson's tell-all memoir Behind the Candelabra: My Life with Liberace, the film is directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) and features electrifying performances by Academy Award® winners Michael Douglas (Wall Street) as Liberace and Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) as Thorson. During its premiere, the film became one of HBO's most watched original films in nearly 10 years.

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.

  • The Making of Behind the Candelabra - explores the legacy of Liberace through costumes, sets, locations, and prosthetics with several cast and the crew members including Douglas and Damon
