Watch a Behind The Scenes Look at Soderbergh's 'Behind The Candelabra' Before Its Cannes Debut

A week before it heads to the Cannes Film Festival (marking the first time a made-for-HBO film screens in official competition), you can check out this 12-minute featurette on the making of Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace biopic, “Behind The Candelabra.”

Starring Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Rob Lowe, Scott Bakula, Debbie Reynolds and Dan Aykroyd, the film follows Liberace (Douglas) as he has a secret affair with the much younger Scott Thorson (Damon). The film — said to be Soderbergh’s last before retirement — will premiere on HBO on May 26, 2013, just as the Cannes Film Festival comes to a close. It is based on Thorson’s 1988 memoir, “Behind the Candelabra: My Life With Liberace.”
