Liberace was a virtuoso pianist, outrageous entertainer and flamboyant star of stage and television. Based on the autobiographical novel, the tempestuous 6-year relationship between Liberace and his (much younger) lover, Scott Thorson, is recounted.
Perhaps American cinema’s most versatile working director, Steven Soderbergh announced his premature retirement with this dazzling biopic of famed American pianist Liberace. This sublime tale of forbidden love turns to be a deeply affecting portrait of queerness, masculinity, and relationships.
