The Official Trailer for Keke Palmer's Alice is Here!


Official Film Summary: Alice (Keke Palmer) yearns for freedom as an enslaved person on a rural Georgia plantation under its brutal and disturbed owner Paul (Jonny Lee Miller). After a violent clash with Paul, 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), Alice quickly comprehends the lies that have kept her in bondage and the promise of Black liberation. Inspired by true accounts, Alice is a modern empowerment fable tracing Alice’s journey through the post-Civil Rights Era American South.

I love KeKe Palmer and the premise of the story is interesting so I'm looking forward to seeing this film. When the trailer says that the film is "inspired by true events" it is most likely referencing the story of Mae Louise Walls Miller. Mae Louise Walls Miller and her family were enslaved well into the 1960s.
