Julian Clary on straight men playing gay characters

Michael Douglas and Matt Damon star in the Stephen Soderbergh film Behind the Candelabra.

The film depicts Liberace in the final years of his life and Matt Damon as Scott Thorson, a young man who became his lover and moved in with him for five years.

It is a candid, touching, funny portrait of a gay relationship.

The comedian and writer Julian Clary saw the film with Front Row's Mark Lawson.

Few recent films have had so much newspaper coverage: So is the fuss justified?
