Only HBO could have done the Liberace movie this big, deep for TV

The Baltimore Sun

Michael Douglas as the glittery Las Vegas pianist, Liberace, and Matt Damon as his young lover -- only HBO could have brought "Behind the Candelabra" to TV with this much style and care.

Douglas, an Oscar winner, is something to behold in this role. Damon is rock solid.

Steven Soderbergh directs, and the supporting cast is a jaw dropper by made-for-TV standards.

Above is a a podcast preview I did with WYPR-FM (88.1) in Baltimore. Enjoy this holiday treat from HBO. I did.

"Behind the Candelabra" premieres at 9 p.m. Sunday (May 26).
