Alice Trailer

"Who are you then?" "I'm free." Vertical has revealed the first official trailer for Alice, which just premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival a few weeks ago. The drama involves an interesting story similar to The Village - Sundance sets up film's the concept: "Alice spends her days enslaved on a rural Georgia plantation restlessly yearning for freedom. After a violent clash with plantation owner Paul, Alice flees through the neighboring woods and stumbles onto the unfamiliar sight of a highway, soon discovering that the year is actually 1973. Rescued on the roadside by a disillusioned Black activist named Frank, Alice uncovers the lies that have kept her enslaved and the promise of Black liberation." Alice stars Keke Palmer, with Common, Gaius Charles, and Jonny Lee Miller. The second half plays like a 70s blaxploitation film, which is the vibe this trailer is going for. I saw this already and it's not so bad. Worth a look if the premise intrigues you.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Krystin Ver Linden's Alice, direct from Vertical's YouTube:

Alice Poster

Alice (Keke Palmer) yearns for freedom as an enslaved person on a rural Georgia plantation under its brutal and disturbed owner Paul (Jonny Lee Miller). After a violent clash with Paul, she flees through the neighboring woods and stumbles onto the unfamiliar sight of a highway, soon discovering that the year is actually 1973. Rescued on the roadside by a disillusioned political activist named Frank (Common), Alice quickly comprehends the lies that have kept her in bondage and the promise of Black liberation. Inspired by true events, Alice is a modern empowerment story tracing Alice's journey through the post-Civil Rights Era American South. Alice is written and directed by first-time filmmaker Krystin Ver Linden, making her feature directorial debut with this film. Produced by Peter Lawson. It premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival this year. Vertical will release Alice in select US theaters on March 18th, 2022 next month.
