After a couplesneak peeks, a full trailer has been unveiled for Steven Soderbergh’s Behind the Candelabra. The film stars Michael Douglas as the famous musician Liberace and Matt Damon as his lover Scott Thorson. The plot centers on the tempestuous relationship between the two throughout their secretive five-year love affair that began in 1977. Judging by the new trailer, the story seems to be heavily from Thorson’s perspective as he took a unique relationship with Liberace. It’s intriguing. Not quite as intriguing as Rob Lowe‘s hairstyle, but close.
Hit the jump to check out the full trailer. The film also stars Dan Aykroyd and Debbie Reynolds. Behind the Candelabra premieres on HBO on May 26th at 9/8c.
