      Frankie & Alice

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Halle Berry gives it her all (and then some), but Frankie & Alice is ultimately too narratively strained and clumsily assembled to do her performance justice.

      Cary Darling Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com Frankie & Alice feels like a film that might have been groundbreaking 40 years ago but has cable-TV movie of the week written all over it in 2014. Rated: 2/5 Apr 4, 2014 Full Review David Hiltbrand Philadelphia Inquirer Berry has proven she's willing to take on enormous challenges, and she certainly exceeds her grasp here. Perhaps that's why Frankie & Alice plays more like an elaborate acting workshop than a movie. Rated: 2/4 Apr 4, 2014 Full Review Michael O'Sullivan Washington Post While all this channel-switching and inevitable unearthing of psychic demons generates a great awards-season clip, it doesn't necessarily lead to a satisfying drama. Rated: 2/4 Apr 3, 2014 Full Review John Wirt Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA) Modestly engaging, the film is more suited to cable TV and Netflix. Rated: 2/4 Apr 19, 2014 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue ... provides Berry with a diva showcase for plenty of over-the-top emotional outbursts and violent tantrums. Apr 18, 2014 Full Review Brent Simon Paste Magazine Admittedly a generously apportioned slice of awards-bait pie, but a well-rendered and engaging psychological drama nonetheless, anchored by two solid performances. Rated: 6.0/10 Apr 18, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Halle Berry stars as a troubled woman who finds herself blacking out and having no memory of how she got to wherever she woke up. She begins seeing a psychiatrist played by Stellan Skarsgard and finds she may be suffering from multiple personalities. This isn't a bad film. Skarsgard is good and Berry is usually better than she is in this one. Here it just comes off as overacting rather than something believable that keeps the viewer engaged. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review andre k Halle Berry is a Great Actress!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A hefty delivery that justified the story's subjective psychology with Berry's channeling performance, alongside Skarsgard's humane empathetic support of gentle approach, taking it to the fullest but anchored down by illogic shortcomings. (B) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Was it slow. Yes. Was it a little disjointed. Yes. Was it a great story worth getting to the end of. Yes. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Good to see Halle really acting again, after cashing checks on eleventy X-Men movies. However, she can't quite pull off the Beautiful Mind-Psycho-Split thing. Valiant effort, because schizophrenia is serious subject matter. I've seen much worse films. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review steve d Berry has no idea how bad the film is. Unfortunately the great supporting cast is given nothing to do.
