“Bruised” finds Berry both behind and ahead of the camera because the director also stars within the drama a few washed-up MMA fighter struggling for redemption as both an athlete and a mother. The Oscar-winner previously spoke to Variety about the challenges she faced in producing the film, including breaking two ribs during filming.
“I didn’t want to prevent because I had prepared for therefore long,” Berry said. “We had rehearsed; we were ready. So my mind, my director’s mind, was just — keep going. and that I compartmentalized that, and that I just kept going: ‘I’m not getting to stop. I’ve come too far. I’m getting to act as if this isn’t hurting. I’m getting to will myself through it.’ then we did.”
