HBO has released the teaser trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s final film before retirement, Behind the Candelabra. The film stars Michael Douglas as the famous musician Liberace and Matt Damon as his lover Scott Thorson. The story centers on the tempestuous relationship between the two throughout their secretive five-year love affair that began in 1977. Judging by the teaser trailer, there’s a fairly cheeky tone, which isn’t too surprising when you consider Liberace’s flamboyant personality and charm.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer. Behind the Candelabra premieres on HBO on May 26th.
