Mini Review - Behind The Candelabra

Behind The Candelabra (out Jul 25) looks at Lee Liberace and contrasts his public life (as an immensely popular entertainer) with that of his private life (dating a 17-year-old toy boy named Scott Thorson). Michael Douglas is charming in the leading role but the film spends too much time on Thorson (Matt Damon) who comes across as a dull nobody. Grade: B.
