“I want to be everything to you Scott; I want to be father, brother, lover, best friend,” says Liberace (Michael Douglas) to his young lover Scott Thorson (Matt Damon) in the first full-length trailer for HBO’s upcoming original film Behind the Candelabra, directed by Steven Soderbergh (Magic Mike, Ocean’s Eleven).

The ups and downs of the couple’s turbulent relationship are on full display in the trailer, from the job offer that began their courtship to Liberace asking a plastic surgeon (Rob Lowe) to make Scott look more like him. In between, there is vase-smashing, drug use and a whole lot of stylish piano-playing. Watch the trailer below to see Douglas and Damon in action!

Behind the Candelabra premieres Sunday, May 26th at 9PM on HBO.
