Keke Palmer Talks About The Emotional Drain To Play Alice [Exclusive Interview]

Keke Palmer makes her return to the big screen in Alice. A film written and directed by Krystin Ver Linden

The Synopsis 

Alice (Keke Palmer, “Hustlers”) yearns for freedom as an enslaved person on a rural Georgia plantation. After a violent clash with its brutal and disturbed owner, Paul (Jonny Lee Miller, “AEon Flux” ), she flees through the neighboring woods and stumbles onto the unfamiliar sight of a highway, soon discovering the year is actually 1973. Rescued on the roadside by a disillusioned political activist named Frank (Common, “Wanted”), Alice quickly comprehends the lies that have kept her in bondage and the promise of Black liberation. Inspired by true events, Alice is a modern empowerment story tracing Alice’s journey through the post-Civil Rights Era American South.
