From Lionsgate and Codeblack Films and the executive producers of "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge" and "Lackawanna Blues" comes a mind-bending drama starring Academy Award® Winner and Golden Globe® Nominee Halle Berry ("The Call," "Monster's Ball"). "Frankie & Alice" is inspired by the remarkable 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 (Halle Berry) works together with a psychotherapist (Stellan Skarsgard) to uncover and overcome the mystery of the inner ghosts that haunt her.
Always at the forefront of women’s issues, from Halle Berry, Academy Award® winner turned film producer, comes a must-see, award-worthy film "Frankie & Alice" - a moving psychological drama inspired by a woman suffering with multiple personality disorder in early 1970s Los Angeles.
