Episode 20 - The Second Decade Begins

August 10, 2020

It's a new year and a new decade for Out of Touchstone, as we kick off 1990 with a star vehicle as well as a visionary director's artistic statement.  First up is STELLA, a remake of the soapy melodrama starring the Queen of Touchstone, Bette Midler.  The story has been told before and doesn't need to be told again.  Finally, the hosts discuss WHERE THE HEART IS, John Boorman's ensemble film based on Shakespeare's "King Lear".  It's a little-known gem, and it's always a pleasure to talk about Dabney Coleman and Christopher Plummer.  Enjoy!
