Description Scott Thorson, a young bisexual man raised in foster homes, is introduced to flamboyant entertainment giant Liberace and quickly finds himself in a romantic relationship with the legendary pianist. Swaddled in wealth and excess, Scott and Liberace have a long affair, one that eventually Scott begins to find suffocating. Kept away from the outside world by the flashily effeminate yet deeply closeted Liberace, and submitting to extreme makeovers and even plastic surgery at the behest of his lover, Scott eventually rebels. When Liberace finds himself a new lover, Scott is tossed on the street. He then seeks legal redress for what he feels he has lost. But throughout, the bond between the young man and the star never completely tears.

    To have Scott Thorson have to be reminded every day when he looks in the mirror of that time in his life is a bizarre reminder of a past relationship

    Im not sure whether or not Liberace was an extreme case of narcissistic behavior or if he was reliving  a sexual trauma in the form of requiring a lover to undergo plastic surgery to look like him.  Ive heard of sex shows in which people are paid for the purpose of having sex when they either are in fact related or look as though they are related to one another,  in either case this is an extreme.

    A wonderful film!

    Damn Damon is such a disappointment in the "Special Features" of the DVD with his "gay afraid" comments. If he'd have "gone for it" as Douglas did...he'd have won that Emmy and should have!  Michael Douglas channeled Carol Channing instead of Liberace (He need to use his "O" voice more...pun intended!) But the DVD was out after the awards...hopefully, a lesson to be learned by Matt. Damn...and Damon is SO Damn-on Sexy...Fu....k!!!

    i know, but i'd assume he wouldn't play a gay role since rumours of his orientation back in the day were a big deal to him. He's cool though, Mark Wahlberg is the cheap copy of Damon =D

    what does that even mean?
  • cadmiumcandy 2013-07-23 16:27:22
