Exclusive: Lionsgate/Codeblack Set Home Entertainment Release For Halle Berry's 'Frankie & Alice'

Frankie and Alice

Released theatrical last month by Codeblack Films/Lionsgate after a 2013 pickup, Halle Berry's Sybil-like tale, Frankie & Alice, enjoyed a brief run, grossing a relatively healthy $695,000, considering the fact that the film had been in release-Limbo for a good 3 years, the length it was in theaters (4 weeks), and its widest theater count (171).

Thus, assuming many of you weren't able to see it while it was in theaters, you'll be pleased to know that the home entertainment release of Frankie & Alice, a film that earned star Halle Berry a Golden Globe nomination in 2011, is set for August 12, Shadow & Act has learned exclusively.

The film, which hails from the executive producers of Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, and also features Stellan Skarsgård, Phylicia Rashad and Chandra Wilson, will be released on DVD, Digital HD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View on August 12 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment and Codeblack Films. 

We also have a look at the final DVD box art and home entertainment release trailer, both embedded below. 

The film's official synopsis reads;

The remarkable true story of an African American go-go dancer named "Frankie" who has dissociative identity disorder (DID). She struggles to retain her true self while fighting against two very unique alter egos: a seven-year-old named "Genius" and a Southern white racist woman named "Alice." In order to stop the multiple voices in her head, Frankie (Halle Berry) works with a psychotherapist (Stellan Skarsgård) to uncover and overcome the mystery of the inner ghosts that haunt her, and the truth that is locked inside her mind.

DVD special features include a featurette titled “The Making of Frankie & Alice with Halle Berry,” which should be self-explanatory.

It's been a busy last 12 months for Codeblack, as the company continues to add to its growing library of films; Most recent releases for the company include the box office smash, Kevin Hart: Let Me Explainthe romantic drama Things Never Said, starring Omari HardwickShanola Hampton, and George Tillman, Jr.’s The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, starring Jennifer Hudson, and the thriller Repentance, starring Forest WhitakerAnthony Mackie and Sanaa Lathan, which was released earlier this year to a healthy $1.2 million.
