Behind the Candelabra
WINNER Golden Globe Award — Best TV Movie
Winner of the Best TV Movie at the Golden Globe Awards, this terrific drama recreates the glittering private world of Liberace (Michael Douglas), the flamboyant, phenomenally successful entertainer whose extravagant costumes and elaborate stage shows made him the most bankable entertainer of his time. The story focuses on Liberace’s tempestuous relationship with Scott Thorson (Matt Damon) during a time when Liberace was at the peak of his popularity but remained closeted.
Featuring a pair of electrifying performances by Oscar®-winners Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, Behind the Candelabra captures the essence of Liberace’s appeal while reminding viewers how different attitudes were at the time.
