'Frankie and Alice' to bow for limited awards-qualifying run
Berry, who also serves as producer, toplines as real-life Frankie Murdoch, a woman struggling with multiple personality disorder in early 1970s Los Angeles. The pic co-stars Stellan Skarsgard, Phylicia Rashad and Chandra Wilson.
“Bringing this story to the bigscreen has been a challenging, yet very satisfying, filmmaking experience,” Berry said in a statement.
In anticipation of the release, Berry will take part during a public discussion Nov. 9 at the AFI Film Festival. “Frankie and Alice” screened last year at the Cannes Film Festival.
Directed by Geoffrey Sax, the film was produced by Access Motion Pictures in association with Relativity Pictures in Motion.
Pic will go up against another limited release, “Rabbit Hole” from Lionsgate, while wide entries on Dec. 17 include Warner Bros.’ “Yogi Bear,” Disney’s “Tron: Legacy” and Sony’s James L. Brooks-helmed “How Do You Know.”
