Coulda Put More to It!

The film itself was interesting, but there should have been a more intriguing plot/introduction that lead the audience up to what was actually going on. There were no preconceptions to inform the audience how the story began. It was like watching a movie from the middle with no end. Halle Berry and Phylesha Rashad are phenomenal actresses who have played in "more interesting and theatrical dramas" more so than the characters played as Frankie and Moma. The film didn't give detail leading up to the pregnancy, in which I'm sure was the surprise and mystery, but unless there is a sequel to this movie, we didn't find out what happened to the baby. I also noticed that the movie began with a note that it was 1957 in Savannah?, GA. Marvin Gaye's song "Let's Get It On" was playing for the dance, and was not published during the era of 1957.

Well acted

I thought Ms. Berry played the part very well, it was one occasion that a person of color received the mental help they so desperately needed. The doctor actually cared enough to go the extra step required to save the life of a human being. Plenty of denial to go around from family and even friends. The circle of people in her life knew something was wrong but no one really stepped in to help.

Best Actress

"Frankie & Alice" is definitely a must see movie. Although it could have been better, Halle Berry's acting made up for any flaws in writing or directing. Mrs Berry gave the performance of a lifetime in portraying this real person who suffered from multiple personality disorder. She left me wanting more, while silencing any critics who may have questioned her acting skills.

I really liked the movie. I try to go see all movies that are true stories. I saw that it wasn't playing in that many places. I'm so glad that I didn't judge it by that. There wasn't but 6 people in the theater that night. Halle Berry did a great job in that movie.
