Frankie & Alice & Halle & More Movie Bucket List

5 Apr

Barely more than a year ago, I wrote about Halle Berry’s Frankie & Alice, for which the actress earned a Golden Globe nod during the 2010/11 awards season. Aside from its brief, year-end Oscar qualifying run, the movie has been unavailable to mass audiences–until now. A few months ago, a reader alerted me that Berry’s vehicle would finally be getting a national release, and that is exactly what has happened as of this week, so that’s why I’m reposting this, and I hope to see F & A myself, at long last, by the week’s end.

Frankie and Alice was similarly primed for awards consideration,  but, alas, to no avail. More than two years after its brief Oscar qualifying run, Frankie and Alice has still not been released on DVD/Blu Ray, and that’s shameful.

Well, as usual, Halle Berry looked smashing at the most recent Academy Awards.  Ostensibly, she was at the ceremony to participate in the salute to the James Bond franchise, per he role as “Jinx” in 2002’s Die Another Day
