Behind the Candelabra: Maybe If Antonin Scalia Looked At Matt Damon’s Butt More Often, We Wouldn’t Have These Problems

Behind the Candelabra: Maybe If Antonin Scalia Looked At Matt Damon’s Butt More Often, We Wouldn’t Have These Problems

Bad news, fans of candelabras: this trailer doesn’t have any. [Ed note: Why do I get the feeling that most news for fans of candelabras is bad news?] Yes, there is a chandelier or two, but according to Wikipedia it’s not the same thing. So if you were hoping for Citizen Kane with candelabras, well, talk about a disappointment. [Ed note: And yet fans of candle wall sconces get their Citizen Kane practically every other week!]

This trailer is actually about Liberace, the flamboyantly gay piano player who here appears more sequin than man. And it looks like he had quite the life: he wore capes, bought luxury cars and hung out with Matt Damon. He also played piano with serious dexterity and excellent posture, which means he probably hated his childhood.
