    This movie, with its flashbacks to past sins and traumas, rests squarely on Berry, a mesmerizer who makes every moment count. show more

    Although it is based on a true story, the dramatization doesn't make much sense psychologically. show more

    It’s all too much. Frankie & Alice has multiple problems it can’t get past. show more

    Halle Berry’s latest vehicle is old-fashioned as a leisure suit, but better-looking and a lot more fun. show more

    Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service

    A soapy period piece that hits all the usual mileposts in filmed versions of such stories. show more

    Frankie & Alice gives her the rare opportunity to play a film’s hero and its villain inside the same body, and she does a memorably dreadful job in both capacities. That trainwreck fascination is about the only redeeming facet of a prestige picture gone terribly, though not entertainingly, awry. show more

    It's just a matter of time, flashbacks, many costume and accent changes, some more jazz, and a triggering tune on the radio before the truth can set Frankie, and the audience, free. show more

    It's occasionally imaginative, and, most importantly, never boring. show more

    Neil Genzlinger The New York Times

    Ms. Berry does a decent job with the role, and the film treats its subject matter respectfully, but the overall package doesn’t rise above ordinariness. show more

    This looks like a great movie to see. Who doesn't like psychological drama movies and Hallie Barry seems to play the part very well. I believe it will be the a real thriller to say the least what little bit i saw in the trailer would have me on the edge of my seat.
