Halle Berry discusses Bruised’s soundtrack
Speaking in a Netflix press release ahead of the film’s outing, Halle Berry discussed Bruised’s empowering soundtrack.
“Well, what’s great about the soundtrack — it’s a one-woman film, written by a woman, directed by a woman, starring a woman, it’s very female-driven,” she explained. So I wanted the film to have an all-female soundtrack.”
“The soundtrack itself is a very hard hit. It’s full of trap music,” she continued. “It’s meant to represent the world in which Jackie is living, but
His state of mind too.”
“It’s tough, it’s edgy, it’s relentless and unforgiving in many ways, and that’s what’s going on inside Jackie’s head,” concluded Berry.
Bruised is available to stream on Netflix from November 24, 2021.
