BRUISED

Halle Berry makes her directorial debut while starring as a washed-up MMA fighter struggling for redemption as both an athlete and a mother. Berry plays Jackie “aka Justice,”, a washed up MMA fighter scraping by in life working multiple jobs and trying to make ends meet. When her boyfriend coaxes her to attend an underground fight, her passion for the sport is reignited. As Jackie prepares to go back to “the only thing she is good at,” the son she once abandoned is dropped off at her doorstep. Confronted by her past choices and traumas, Jackie will have to fight to reclaim the two most meaningful things she has walked away from: six-year-old Manny and an MMA title.

With this assured debut feature, Academy Award winner Berry crafts a textured portrait of a woman defined by her fight-or-flight reactions to the challenges life has thrown her way. Through her explosive performance, the character Jackie simultaneously radiates tightly coiled rage and heart-rending vulnerability. She is supported by an amazing cast. BRUISED regards all of its characters’ flaws with great empathy while building to a rousing, fist-pumping finale, and deservedly joins the hallows of the classic redemption films of its ilk, from THE FIGHTER to CREED.
