CodeBlack films announced yesterday that it has acquired the North American distribution rights to Frankie & Alice starring Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry and will release the film on April 4, 2014.
Inspired by a true story, the moving drama centers around a young woman (Berry) with multiple personality disorder who struggles to cope with her disease. Stellan Skarsgard , Emmy® nominee Phylicia Rashad and Emmy® nominee Chandra Wilson also star in the film.

Berry also served as producer on the film along with Vincent Cirrincione (Lackawanna Blues, Introducing Dorothy Dandridge). Berry won an Academy Award for her riveting performance in Lionsgate’s Monster’s Ball and has starred in such films as X Men, X Men: The Last Stand, Die Another Day, Bulworth, Swordfish, The Call and the upcoming X Men: Days of Future Past.
“We are very pleased to be working with Halle Berry and CodeBlack Films/Lionsgate on the release of Frankie and Alice,” said 37 Star Media Fund Chairman Robert Watts. “This is a career landmark for Halle as this is her first role as Producer.
