We love Halle Berry. Our love for her is so strong that we even forgive her for Catwoman. Her latest film, Frankie & Alice is a mind-bending drama inspired by the true story of an African American go-go dancer “Frankie” with multiple personalities (dissociative identity disorder or “DID”) 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 multiple voices in her head, Frankie works together with a psychotherapist (Stellan Skarsgard) to uncover and overcome the mystery of the inner ghosts that haunt her.
“‘Frankie & Alice’ is an emotionally compelling film that I cannot wait for audiences to finally see,” said Halle Berry. “I am extremely proud of the film because it focuses on the very real issues of mental illness, and it is my wish that Frankie Murdoch’s story will give hope and support to those struggling.”
In this video, the Academy Award-winning actress talks about the movie and why she got involved in the project.
“Frankie & Alice” opens in theaters on April 4th. You can watch the trailer here.
