Michael Douglas and Matt Damon star in the amazing true story of flamboyant pianist Liberace's great love affair.
It's the summer of 1977. Pianist and television star Liberace (Michael Douglas) is one of the world's most popular entertainers, living a lifestyle of outrageous excess. Into his dressing room steps a handsome stranger named Scott Thorson (Matt Damon). The young man is subsequently employed as Liberace's chauffeur. But behind closed doors, they embark on a passionate affair that is to last for five years. Adapted by veteran, Oscar-nominated screenwriter Richard LaGravenese from Thorson's autobiographical novel, this compelling, tempestuous love story is set against a backdrop of extraordinary glamour. It lifts the lid on a relationship that Liberace kept secret from his fans while he was alive. The film also marks Matt Damon's sixth collaboration with busy, multi-talented director Steven Soderbergh. Watch out too for screen legend Debbie Reynolds as Liberace's mum!
