Film trailer: 'Frankie and Alice' starring Halle Berry
Friday 03 December 2010
Released early this week, the first trailer for
Frankie and Alice starring Halle Berrry shows a performance by the actress reminiscent of her role in
Monster's Ball, which earned her an Oscar.
Based on the true story of Frankie Murdoch, the psychological drama focuses on a woman suffering with Disassociate Identity Disorder or multiple personalities. Set in the 1970s, the footage shows the character's various disconnected selves, including a dancer and a racist, intercut with therapy sessions with her doctor in a psychiatric facility.
The film costars Stellan Skarsgard ( Angels & Demons), Phylicia Rashad ( For Colored Girls) and Matt Frewer ( Watchmen) and is directed by Geoffrey Sax ( White Noise).
The film was scheduled for release on December 10, most likely for consideration in the upcoming Oscar race.
