Stella Film Poster


A remake of the 1937 classic weepie `Stella Dallas' with Bette Midler in the title role as the self-sacrificing working-class mother who raises her daughter without the help of her wealthy upper-crust father, who has remarried. When the girl is in her teens, however, Stella gives her up to the life of privilege her father can offer, deliberately shunning contact with her beloved child. Also featuring John Goodman of TV's `Roseanne'.
