Behind the Candelabra, 2013 - ★★★★

Even as Behind The Candelabra turned up in end of year lists I remained skeptical about another TV biopic but I shouldn't have been. Great characters, great actors and great performances all round. Hugely enjoyable and in my opinion a more engaging love story than Blue Is The Warmest Colour which shares many key points (popular older artist takes advantage of naive young lover)

I watched this is a double bill with Side Effects and both are great at highlighting Soderbergh's versatility.
