Michael Douglas, who won Academy Awards for his work in “Wall Street” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” stars as late pianist Lee Liberace in the upcoming HBO film "Behind the Candelabra," which debuts May 26 on the cable network.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
