Netflix has debuted a trailer for Bruised, the Halle Berry-starring movie coming to their streaming service really rather soon. I’ve been looking forward to seeing this one for quite some some time. Happy to say that this one actually lands on Netflix on 24th November. Not too long to wait, then.
Jackie Justice (Halle Berry) is a mixed martial arts fighter who leaves the sport in disgrace. Down on her luck and simmering with rage and regret years after the fight, she’s coaxed into a brutal underground fight by her manager and boyfriend Desi (Adan Canto) and grabs the attention of a fight league promoter (Shamier Anderson) who promises Jackie a life back in the octagon. But the road to redemption becomes unexpectedly personal when Manny (Danny Boyd, Jr.) — the son she gave up as an infant — shows up at her doorstep.
Berry makes her directorial debut with this one as well, so one more reason to add this to your watch list. Adriane Lenox, Sheila Atim, Valentina Shevchenko, and Stephen McKinley Henderson make up the main cast.
