ANSWER: Hold on a minute. “Stella” is the Bette Midler remake ot Barbara Stanwyck‘s definitive – movie soap opera about a woman who sacrifices all for her daughter. The Midler version isn’t due out for a while but my spies tell me it’s part camp, part tears.
“The first half is very funny,” says one Hollywoodian who caught the flick at a test-market preview. It’s the second half that will bring on the tears, I’m told.
