Review of 'Behind the Candelabra'
But Scott goes through with the surgery and spends the rest of the film with strangely shiny cheekbones. Guess Matt Damon (actually quite good in this film) didn't want to actually have surgery, and popping speed to stay slim (the California diet, apparently).
Michael Douglas good as Liberace (did he give interview about getting throat cancer from so much cunnilingus to re-assert his heterosexuality in the aftermath of a credible performance as a gay man?). But the film is not enjoyable to watch. On the positive side, it's nice to be reminded that some things do change for the better.
