Watch This: Behind the Candelabra

Last week we finally got caught up on some movies and had the chance to see the HBO special Behind the Candelabra starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.
The film is based on the autobiographical novel about the tempestuous six-year relationship between Liberace and his much younger lover, Scott Thorson. Everyone involved in the film did a spectacular job and it left me wanting to find out more about this relationship and read the whole book.  
Michael Douglas and Matt Damon were superb and I expect some awards coming their way when awards season starts.
Best of all? Rob Lowe's performance as Liberace's plastic surgeon was out of this world. Big kudos to him!
Here's a shot of the real-life couple...fascinating! If you get a chance, you should definitely check out the film!
