Frankie and Alice
Look! It's Halle Berry rolling around the streets of East Hastings in Vancouver. If you know Vancouver, you'll know that East Hastings is NOT where you want to be rolling around. I hope she didn't roll over any stray needles that may be laying about. I remember when she was in town filming this movie and how it was a big deal that she was barefoot on East Hastings, not to mention with her breasts hanging out.
The movie is based on a true story, and tells the tale of a woman named Frankie who has disassociate personality disorder. I don't know how realistic the portrayal is, but it was a good movie and has interesting layers that get revealed as you watch. I wasn't itching to see this film, but that could be due to the lack of hype. She did get a Golden Globe nomination for this, but I don't think she's been campaigning hard enough to get a mention at the Oscars. We'll see, I guess.
