Bette Midler’s New Film ‘Freak Show’ To Play At Berlin Film Festival (Feb 9 -18, 2017)

Hollywood Reporter Berlin Film Festival Reveals Final Films in Generations Sidebars Aimed at Young Audiences 9:59 AM PST 1/13/2017 by Scott Roxborough 2df68b0a00000578-0-_pictured_in_2004_-a-65_1446259605842 Berlin on Friday unveiled the final titles in its Generations sidebars, Generation 14plus and Generation Kplus, for films targeting younger audiences. The Berlin Film Festival begins on February 9th and ends on February 18th. *Freak Show, the directorial debut of British producer (and wife of Sting) Trudie Styler, will have its world premiere in Berlin’s Generation 14plus section. The teen drama stars Alex Lawther as a student at a conservative high school who decides to campaign to become homecoming queen. Abigail Breslin, Bette Midler, Laverne Cox, Larry Pine and Ian Nelson co-star.

*Freak Show USA Dir. Trudie Styler World premiere Somewhere between David Bowie, Lady Gaga, Freddy Mercury and Oscar Wilde, Billy has carved out his own spot in the sparkling firmament of pop culture. Though the denizens of his conservative surroundings find all this markedly less fabulous, Billy has no intention of deviating from his plan to campaign for the role of Homecoming Queen at his school. What at first seems a high school caper transforms into a bombastic yet nuanced drama, one which earns the attribution that Billy himself has also claimed as his own: trans-visionary. Aside from Alex Lawther’s brilliant performance, Bette Midler, Laverne Cox, Larry Pine and Ian Nelson also shine in this one-of-a-kind film. ...  Read More

BetteBack December 17, 1977: Broken Blossom Review

Colorado Springs Gazette December 17, 1977 0 BETTE MIDLER: “Broken Blossom” (Atlantic) Bette Midler could have been a contender — she seems to have settled, as a recording artist at least, for being a mere pretender. On vinyl, her greatest talent is proving to be an ability to outstrip her own mediocrity. Her first four albums were plagued by problems of material and inconsistent production: “Broken Blossom,” her fifth, uses Brooks Arthur (and Bones Howe, for one track) to solve the production problem, but the material is a mess. Aside from her duet with Tom Waits, “I Never Talk to Strangers,” and the Ronettes obscure “Paradise,” most of those songs are founded on a misapprehension of Midler’s performing strengths. “La Vie En Rose” is boring, “Empty Bed Blues” a nice try but reveals an uttter lack of blues feeling, “Red” the most mediocre sort of hard-rock, and so forth. The pop songs are OK, but nothing here touches the best of “Streisand Superman,” for one instance. If Midler could, perhaps, settle on one musical style per LP — let her scope reveal itself over the span of her work — she might have a fighting chance. As it is, I’d rather watch her on TV.
