To prep you for Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming biopic, “Behind the Candelabra,” HBO just released a fantastic 12-minute short movie about the making of the feature. More than getting into the nitty-gritty of the production, these clips cover much of Liberace’s biography, psychology, exuberance, and charisma.
“Behind the Candelabra” is based on Scott Thorson’s biography of the flamboyant pianist. Thornson, played by Matt Damon, was a long-time lover of the famed entertainer, played by Michael Douglas. The film also features Rob Lowe, Paul Reiser, Dan Aykroyd, Scott Bakula, and Debbie Reynolds.
The HBO film will premiere at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, before it shows on May 26 at 9 PM on the network.
