This film is based on an autobiographical novel and was shown on HBO. Liberace was a virtuoso pianist and an outrageous entertainer. He had a 40-year career and he lived lavishly with a lifestyle of excess both on the stage and off. The time period is from 1977 to 1983 when Scott Thorson walked into Liberace’s life and they were together for six years.
This film was record breaking for HBO with the biggest audience since Something the Lord Made was shown in 2004. I will never be able to look at Douglas, Damon and Lowe the same way again!! This is definitely for mature audiences. 3 ½* (I liked this movie)
118 min, Drama directed by Steven Soderbergh with Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Dan Aykroyd, Scott Bakula, Rob Lowe, Tom Papa, Paul Reiser, Bruce Ramsay.
Note: Imdb 7.1 out of 10.
