From Down and Out In Beverly Hills to Beaches, superstar Bette Midler has wowed audiences worldwide with her music, humor, and charisma. Midler delivers another thrilling performance in Stella. Tough and fiercely independent, Stella discovers that she is pregnant after a brief relationship with a doctor (Stephen Collins, The First Wives Club), but is too proud to accept a marriage of convenience from him or her well-meaning best friend (John Goodman, The Big Lebowski). Ready to face life without regrets, Stella single-handedly raises her daughter Jenny (Trini Alvarado). Through the years, the two share a very special relationship, until Stella faces the truth—that she cannot provide her daughter with a life of advantages that her wealthy father can give her. Stella is a warm, humorous, and thoroughly entertaining drama that speaks to the hearts of all audiences.
