Full Behind The Candelabra Trailer Lands
Soderbergh feels liberated

09 April 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: HBO YouTube

Side Effects was his last film to be released theatrically - or so he says, anyway - but Behind The Candelabra is Steve Soderbergh's real swansong, a made-for-HBO movie about Liberace (Michael Douglas) and his lover Scott Thorson (Matt Damon), and here below is the very first trailer.

Rounding out the cast are Dan Aykroyd - who looks great in those Elliott-Gould-from-Ocean's-Eleven spectacles - and Rob Lowe in an equally spectacular wig. Here's hoping at one point he gets to wear his kimono from Thank You For Smoking once again, but with all this glamour, glitz and glitter, most eyes are going to be on Douglas' tempermental diva. Oh, and Debbie Reynolds, of course. But that goes without saying. 

Behind The Candelabra - which is based on the real-life Scott Thorson's memoirs, Behind the Candelabra: My Life With Liberace - is set to air on Sunday, May 26, at 9pm on HBO.
