I know Bette Mi­dler has been busy on Broad­way, but I would en­joy see­ing her in a movie again. Any chance?

Albuquerque Journal - Parade - - Personality - —Mary S., Jef­fer­son City, Mo.

A: Yes! Be­fore she signed to star in Broad­way’s Hello, Dolly!, Mi­dler, 72, filmed a role for the com­ing-of-age film Freak Show, based on James St. James’ award-win­ning cult novel. Set for re­lease Jan. 12, it will tell the story of a cross-dress­ing teen (Alex Lawther) at­tend­ing an ul­tra­con­ser­va­tive high school after his boozy mother (Mi­dler) checks into re­hab. On be­half of out­casts and un­der­dogs ev­ery­where, he de­cides to run for home­com­ing queen.
