Before Elton John sang about a tiny dancer, before Madonna vogued and Lady Gaga had a bad romance, there was Liberace. Now HBO Films is bringing the story of the world-renowned performer to your TV screen, with the help of director Steven Soderbergh and Academy Award-winners Michael Douglas and Matt Damon. Behind the Candelabra premieres on HBO May 26 but watch the trailer below for a taste of all the sequins, romance and drama to come.
