This weekend the Liberace biopic BEHIND THE CANDELABRA picked up five Bafta nominations, including a supporting actor nomination for Matt Damon. Somewhat controversially, no Hollywood studio was prepared to bankroll it and the film was not released in the USA. But it was broadcast on HBO and released in UK cinemas in 2013 to huge critical acclaim. With the DVD out now, if you haven’t caught up with the fascinating true story behind this prizewinning film, check out BEHIND THE CANDELABRA, published by Head of Zeus.
