Warning: ‘Behind the Candelabra’ Contains Lethal Doses of Glitz — TEASER

Behind the Candelabra

If you’re at all averse to glimmering lights, lavish garments, ornate vehicles, or dolled up Matt Damons, then Behind the Candelabra is not the film for you. But Steven Soderbergh’s latest (and final!) endeavor, an HBO movie about the life and work of one Liberace, will please anyone with a taste for glitz and glamour. Yes, all those who pine for the lap of luxury will find themselves hard pressed to ignore the call of the dance when Michael Douglas tangles with those ivories in the new teaser for the film.

While we’re sad to see Soderbergh leave showbiz, we’re excited to see him take on such an iconic name like Liberace, with the capable talents of Douglas and Damon handling his story (Damon plays Liberace’s longtime boyfriend Scott Thorson), and an apparently tireless team of costume and set designers transforming the film into a dazzling playworld. Check out the trailer below; Behind the Candelabra will air on Sept. 18.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
