Behind the CandelabraDVR This Thursday, May 30th, 2013
I haven’t seen it yet, because it’s on my DVR, but there’s hasn’t been a TV movie I have been so excited about in eons. Steven Soderbergh’s film about Liberace and his last lover, the young, blond and clueless Scott Thorson, was too gay and too sexy to be a feature film, supposedly. HBO, however, was thrilled to produce Behind the Candelabra, which stars Michael Douglas as the flamboyant Vegas pianist and Matt Damon as Thorson. It never would have crossed my mind to have the man who did Traffic and Oceans 11 direct or cast Douglas and Damon, but the previews and the buzz are very, very good, and I cannot wait to see how they deal with one of the great queer stories of showbiz.
