Bette Midler portrays a rock star whose success is laced with so much booze, drugs and hard-living; it eventually causes her downfall. Trapped in a self-created hell, Rose begs her manager (Alan Bates) for time off from her concert tour. When he refuses, she seeks comfort and love in the arms of a handsome drifter (Frederic Forrest), but even he cannot handle her life of excess.

Bette does Janis, in the nicest possible way - The Rose review by NC

Spoiler Alert

Bette has power for sure. Great stage prescence, and can spot Joplin from almost first 10 minutes.

Quite an old film now but still pretty good stuff, and Bette can do the biz.
