Behind the Candelabra Teaser Trailer 2

HBO has released the second teaser trailer for Behind The Candelabra online, and this teaser clip about the Liberace film reveals intimate scenes with the two lead actors.

Michael Douglas stars as the famed pianist in the Steven Soderbergh-directed film, while Matt Damon plays Liberace’s younger lover, Scott Thorson.

The film — based on Thorson’s memoir about his tempestuous six-year romance with the entertainer — promises to shed light on Liberace’s private life, from his extravagant spending to his fascination with plastic surgery – much of which was kept secret from the public until he died of AIDS in 1987.

The cast includes Rob Lowe, Debbie Reynolds, Boyd Holbrook, Paul Reiser, Cheyenne Jackson, and many others.

Behind The Candelabra will be Soderbergh’s last film before his self-imposed retirement from feature film-making. It is scheduled to air on HBO in the US on May 26, 2013.
