Before their affair dissolves into drug abuse, adultery, and a scandalous court case, Liberace and Thorson are extremely affectionate and loving to one another.
Many scenes showing Liberace and Thorson making love, including one in which Thorson is thrusting above Liberace with both men appearing naked (no private parts are seen). We also see them kissing and bathing together in a hot tub, and the hindquarters of both actors. There is offscreen porn with graphic descriptions of what's taking place onscreen. There are also discussions of adultery and a very raw conversation about anal sex.
Some cursing, including four-letter words and many epithets concerning homosexuality: "You c--k-sucking tenor f--k!" "You old queen!"
The story is about real people and based on an actual book, which viewers may want to purchase and read after watching. They may also be interested in seeking out Liberace's musical output or television/film work.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Many scenes of characters drinking and acting drunk. Liberace, among others, smokes often onscreen. Two men have sex and use amyl nitrate. One character develops an addiction to amphetamines and cocaine and we see him popping pills and acting erratic. Characters explicitly condemn his drug use, but praise the weight loss that accompanies it.
