Frankie & Alice

TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

Halle Berry pulls out all the stops as 1970 Los An­ge­les go-go dancer Frankie, who is prone to black­outs dur­ing which two dis­tinct per­son­al­i­ties emerge – a timid seven-year-old child with a ge­nius IQ and a white racist South­ern belle. For­tu­nately, Stel­lan Skars­gård’s sym­pa­thetic shrink is on hand to un­cover the trau­matic ori­gins of her dis­or­der. The film is a lot less lurid and campy than you might think. Berry picked up a Golden Globe nom­i­na­tion for her gutsy per­for­mance.
