Behind the Candelabra

International Feature Film Competition

Liberace was the most commercially successful showman of his time and his piano performances in Las Vegas were so opulent that even his contemporary “heirs” Elton John and Lady Gaga would be caught breathless. And although he certainly held the record in how much glitter and feathers a man can wear while performing, he won the libel lawsuit for homosexuality ”allegations.” The film chronicles five turbulent years of his relationship in a mansion labelled with “L” monograms all over it with the much younger Scott, who became his chauffeur, bodyguard, and almost adopted son. This incredible true story taking place in the glamorous 70’s is already being claimed by  critics as one of the best films of the year. It is directed by Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh and stars Matt Damon and Michael Douglas.
