17 of the Greatest Music Biopics of All Time
Behind the Candelabra
Liberace had a long, fascinating life and this music biopic captures the last ten years of it. Based on the memoir Behind the Candelabra: My Life with Liberace, by the artist’s love Scott Thorson, the film gives lots of insight into the relationship between the two and Liberace’s private life. Matt Damon plays Thorson and Michael Douglas in a transformative role plays the flamboyant pianist. The biopic may have been a made-for-TV movie from HBO but that didn’t stop the accolades from rolling in. It won several Emmys and a Golden Globe during the 2013 awards season. Even those who don’t know much about Liberace’s life will find this biopic fantastically dramatic and entertaining.
