Based on the autobiographical novel, the tempestuous 6-year relationship between Liberace and his (much younger) lover, Scott Thorson, is recounted.
The incest in HBO’s Liberace drama film is merely implied, but it’s super creepy nevertheless. The gist: Liberace insists that his boyfriend Scott undergo plastic surgery so he’ll look more like Liberace. A fan then mistakes Scott for Liberace’s son, which totally turns Liberace on, and kissing ensues. A resounding “yikes” on all possible levels.
