Halle Berry and Stellan Skarsgard in the Frankie and Alice trailer

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

I can’t say I’m that big of a fan of Halle Berry.  I think she has talent, but I also think she tends to overact a lot of her characters, thus removing some believability from them.  So I guess the best way to counter an actor that overacts is to give them a role that actually requires them to do just that.  In this case, Halle Berry has chosen a perfect character as a woman that has multiple personalities, one of which is a prostitute and the other who happens to be racist.  If not for the extreme drama coming through in the trailer, I’d say it was a comedy.

The film looks like it could be emotionally very heavy.  It’s also based on a true story, which makes it that much more powerful.  Stellan Skarsgard, Phylicia Rashad and Chandra Wilson also star in the film from director Geoffrey Sax.  Watch the trailer here.
