Behind the Candelabra (2013)
Behind the Candelabra accounts the final ten years of Liberace’s life, as seen through the eyes of a disgruntled ex-lover. It’s a borderline caricatured, well-acted and quite funny movie in which a superb Michael Douglas conjures up the old virtuoso in all his glory. Director Steven Soderbergh is more interested in what went on under the sheets than on them, but I guess that's just a sign of our sensationalistic times. The film will be meaningful and enjoyable for anyone who isn't inclined to feel that it has an agenda. With an incredibly young-looking Matt Damon as the lover Scott Thorson (whose book the film is based upon) and a hilarious Rob Lowe as the couple’s joint plastic surgeon.
