Brazilian born actress ALICE BRAGA (Frey) received critical acclaim and international recognition for her stirring performance in 2002's City of God which helped catapult the film to multiple Golden Globe and Oscar nominations.
Braga was last seen in the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road directed by Walter Salles starring alongside Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, and Garrett Hedlund. In 2011, she starred in the Warner Bros. thriller The Rite opposite Anthony Hopkins as a reporter attempting to uncover the secrets behind exorcism.

Braga was also seen opposite Emily Mortimer in David Mamet's Redbelt, chronicling the life of a Jiu-jitsu master, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor. Following Redbelt, Braga joined an ensemble cast including Sean Penn and Harrison Ford in Wayne Kramer's film Crossing Over, which focused on the lives of immigrants in Los Angeles and their efforts to achieve US citizenship.
