But, despite her overachieving attempt to win an Oscar, the film falls short. Halle Berry got a Golden Globe nomination in for her lead role in Frankie and Alice , but you've probably never heard of the film because unless you were one of the few people able to catch its tiny awards-qualifying run the year before, it hasn't been available to see until now. This past Friday, CodeBlack Entertainment released the film, which was directed by Geoffrey Sax Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker , in 50 markets after years on the shelf, capitalizing on Berry's star power.
Born in in Cleveland, Ohio, Halle Berry is acclaimed actress and former beauty queen. Halle and her older sister, Heidi, spent the first few years of their childhood living in an inner-city neighborhood. In the early s, Jerome Berry abandoned his wife and children, after which Judith moved her family to the predominantly white Cleveland suburb of Bedford. Berry attended a nearly all-white public school, and as a result was subjected to discrimination at an early age.
