Love story and a stylish loneliness.
Movie about the last ten years in the life of pianist Liberace (Michael Douglas) and the secret affair he had with the younger Scott Thorson (Matt Damon), based on Thorson’s memoir.
The film is not only a story about two guys that fall in love but also a portrait of celebrity loneliness. Michael Douglas and Matt Damon performances were great and definitely a reason why you shoud watch the film! It has a good pace, interesting yet simple strory, you get to know the characters, atmosphere, costume, make-up and cinematography are excellent. Maybe there could have been more music but otherwise it's very stylish, entertaining and watchable film. 4/5
