First Trailer for 'Frankie & Alice' with Halle Berry is Four Years Too Late
Back in 2010, the indie drama Frankie & Alice was believed to be a viable chance for Halle Berry to get another Oscar nomination. But as some indies do, the film say on a shelf with no distribution, and Berry missed out on her chance at Oscar gold. But four years later, the film is poised for release this spring, and while it's likely not going to get any attention at the Academy Awards next year, at least audiences can see what has been praised as a spectacular performance for Berry playing a young woman in the 70s with a personality disorder who struggles to contain a racist alter-ego. It looks a little over-the-top though. Watch?
Here's the first trailer for Geoffrey Sax's Frankie & Alice, originally from Yahoo:
Frankie & Alice is directed by Geoffrey Sax (White Noise), and first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010. The film is inspired by the true story of an African American go-go dancer (Halle Berry) with multiple personalities who struggles to remain her true self while fighting against two very unique alter egos: a seven-year-old child named Genius and a Southern white racist woman named Alice. In order to stop the voices in her head, Frankie works together with a psychotherapist (Stellan Skarsgard) to uncover and overcome the mystery of the ghosts haunting her. Codeblack Entertainment releases the film on April 4th.

Sounds like it would've made a hilarious comedy. What was that Dave Chappelle Show skit where the blind black guy was a KKK member?

Could be a solid tryout for the Susannah Dean dark tower role

Looks less like drama and more like melodrama.
