‘Alice’: new historical thriller starring Keke Palmer gets premiere date

According to Bloody Disgusting, the historical thriller “Alice”, starring and produced by Keke Palmer (“Scream Queens”), finally has its release date.

The feature will officially premiere on March 18, 2022.

In the plot …

Palmer plays Alice, a slave who dreams of being free on a Georgia farm, owned by cruel and disturbing Paul (Jonny Lee Miller). After a violent confrontation with him, Alice flees into the forest and ends up finding an unknown highway. Soon, she discovers the year 1973. Saved by the side of the road by an activist cop, Frank (Common), Alice quickly realizes the lies that kept her in prison and the promises of freedom.

Described as a modern empowerment fable, the story is inspired by real events.

Earlier, Palmer had revealed why he was interested in the project.

Enjoy watching:

“Many of the films that describe this period in our history are rooted in the victimization of the black protagonist, but the plot of ‘Alice’ shows otherwise and it was this perspective that drew me to the project. It tackles the harsh realities of slavery and white supremacy, while providing inspiration and vindication throughout the protagonist’s journey. I don’t want anyone who leaves the cinema as a victim, I want them to feel empowered.

Krystin Ver Linden will be in charge of the directing, as well as the writing of the screenplay.

Although not very well known in the field, Ver Linden has a lot of experience and has worked as a script assistant for Quentin Tarantino on ‘Free Django’ and ‘Inglourious Basterds’.
