THE RITE

ALICE BRAGA (Angeline) received critical acclaim and international recognition, including a Cinema Brazil Grand Prize nomination, for her stirring performance in the Oscar®-nominated 2002 drama "City of God,” under the direction of Fernando Meirelles. She received another Cinema Brazil Grand Prize nomination when she reunited with Meirelles to star in the mystery drama "Blindness,” with Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Danny Glover and Gael Garcia Bernal.

Upcoming, Braga will be seen in "On the Road,” an independent drama based on the book by Jack Kerouac, also starring Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund. Most recently, she starred in Robert Rodriguez-produced sci-fi actioner "Predators,” with Adrien Brody, Laurence Fishburne and Topher Grace, and opposite Jude Law and Forest Whitaker in "Repo Men.”

In 2007, Braga starred opposite Will Smith in Francis Lawrence's worldwide blockbuster "I Am Legend,” adapted from the classic story by Richard Matheson. Her recent film credits also include the indie dramas "Crossing Over,” with Sean Penn and Harrison Ford, and David Mamet's "Redbelt,” opposite Emily Mortimer.

The Brazilian-born Braga won a Cinema Brazil Grand Prize for Best Actress, as well as a number of film festival awards, for her work in "Cidade Baixa” ("Lower City”), a drama about a dangerous love triangle. Her other film credits include "Sólo Dios Sabe” ("Only God Knows”), which premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival; "Journey to the End of the Night,” in which she starred with Mos Def and Brendan Fraser; and the offbeat comedy "Cheiro do Ralo, O” ("Drained”), receiving another Cinema Brazil Grand Prize nomination.
