The Rose: Plot
Τhe story of a self-destructive rock star of the sixties who struggles to cope with the constant pressures of her career and the demands of her ruthless business manager. Loosely based on the life of singer Janis Joplin, the film was originally titled Pearl, after Joplin's nickname; it was fictionalized after her family declined to grant the producers the rights to her story. Bette Midler gives a superb performance in the leading role, performing all songs and carrying the dramatic weight of the film, earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in 1980. The film earned three more Oscar nominations.
Directed by Mark Rydell
Prior to the film screening, enjoy the screening of the short film Umbrella (2018), as part of the collaboration of Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) with the Greek Film Center (GFC).
