Halle Berry Makes Directorial Debut in Upcoming ‘Bruised’ Film



Halle Berry

On October 14 Netflix debuted the trailer for Bruised, a mixed martial arts drama with the Academy Award winner Halle Berry.

The film, which is also Berry’s debut as a director, premiered last year at the Toronto Film Festival and then Netflix paid $20 million for the worldwide distribution rights. 

Bruised is the story of Jackie Justice (Halle Berry), a mixed martial arts fighter who leaves her sport in disgrace. 

After years of regret from her last fight, she agrees to a brutal underground fight negotiated by her boyfriend and manager Desi, played by Adam Canto, in order to win back her life in the mixed martial arts as promised by a fight league promoter played by Shamier Anderson.

Her journey becomes even more complicated as she attempts to reconcile with her son Manny, played by Danny Boyd, Jr., whom she gave up as an infant.

The trailer features Berry battered after an agonizing defeat. 

The Oscar-winning actress immersed herself into the role and she even ended up breaking two of her ribs during filming

Bruised also stars Valentina Shevchenko, Adriane Lenox, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Sheila Atina, and will be out on Netflix on November 24.
