The first half of the trailer for Frankie and Alice seems like a fairly cardboard view of a troubled young woman, but the entire thing takes a Three Faces of Eve turn really quick at the gravelly command of actor Stellan Skarsgard.
Oscar winner Halle Berry might appear to be aiming for the award again, although the results for Things We Lost In the Fire was a similar shot fired and missed. Here, it’s tough to say just from the trailer. The role looks tragic and brutal enough, and Berry is a talent beyond her years. There’s a chance here that the shivers induced by the trailer extend all the way out into the film which sees its release in December. [Cinema Blend]
