New Stills and Clips from Liberace Biopic BEHIND THE CANDELABRA


Hailed by the critics, the Liberace biopic, BEHIND THE CANDELABRA, inspired by the memoirs of his love Scott Thorson, is in UK cinemas now and we have numerous video clips and stills to share with you.

Before Elvis, before Elton John, Madonna and Lady Gaga, there was Liberace: virtuoso pianist, outrageous entertainer and flamboyant star of stage and television. A name synonymous with showmanship, extravagance and candelabras, he was a world-renowned performer with a flair that endeared him to his audiences and created a loyal fan base spanning his 40-year career. Liberace lived lavishly and embraced a lifestyle of excess both on and off stage. In summer 1977, handsome young stranger Scott Thorson walked into his dressing room and, despite their age difference and seemingly different worlds, the two embarked on a secretive five-year love affair. BEHIND THE CANDELABRA takes a behind-the-scenes look at their tempestuous relationship – from their first meeting backstage at the Las Vegas Hilton to their bitter and public break-up.

BEHIND THE CANDELABRA stars Academy Award® winners Michael Douglas as flamboyant entertainer, Liberace, and Matt Damon as his lover Scott Thorson, is executive produced by Emmy® winner Jerry Weintraub and directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Soderbergh from a script by Oscar® nominee Richard LaGravenese
