Frankie and Alice Trailer: Oscar Bait..

frankie300It’s that time of year again folks.. No we’re not talking about Christmas, but the annual pre-Oscar period in which studios start hyping up their big Academy Award hopefuls. As a tale of emotional turmoil which is partially based upon a true story, Frankie and Alice is smack-bang in the middle of Oscar-bait territory.

There is still no official UK release date for this one, but with preliminary screenings in the US over the next few months, followed by a mass launch in February, Halle Berry should be in with a shout at the 83rd annual Academy Awards. The movie was shot in 2008 and has been mysteriously held back – mysterious becauses critics have met the film with praise so far.
