I must say I was expecting something different from this movie. It tells the story of Liberace a piano player who is very famous and gay. When he meets Scott, he immediately starts flirting with him an offers him a contract to live in his house and be his partner in everything even in bed. Scott who is also gay and has never had a "family" accepts and starts living with a man that is like his father and at the same time lover. From this point on the movie is very slow and it shows all the aspects of the life of the star of the stages and his hidden boyfriend. They live like super-stars, have a good life in all aspects and seems like they love each other.
The thing is that Scott had never been comfortable in Liberace's house, everyone looked at him in a weird way. Despite this fact, Scott is so in love in a parent and also romantic love with Lee that he does not care. After an hour or so... the interesting part starts. Lee wants to change a little bit his life and wants Scott and him to be in an open relationship.
This is not the movie I thought it would be, it's based on real facts and it makes a kind of documentary of the life of famous - gay - people behind the stage and how they managed to have this kind of life but it is also very slow and sometimes dense.... it is saved by two magnificent performances by Michael Douglas and Matt Damon and could be remarkable to say Rob Lowe nail his character. But if it wasn't for these actors this movie could have had much more difficulties to be what it is. It is an interesting story because we haven't had a lot of stories in the cinema about gays and their problems behind a stardom life but in some way it seems it wasn't as good as it could have been.
