Bette Midler plays a self-destructive 1960s rock star in this drama loosely based on the life of Janis Joplin. Midler's character, nicknamed The Rose, is an alcoholic whose career is driven at an unsustainable pace by her exploitative manager. Looking for an escape from the trials of performing, Rose falls into a tumultuous romance with a limousine driver. The film also stars Alan Bates, Frederic Forrest, and Harry Dean Stanton. The film debuted in 1979 to positive reviews, and its title song was a best-selling hit for Midler.
