Monster

Playing Aileen Wuornos, dubbed "America's first female serial killer," Oscar winner Charlize Theron embodies the woman who terrorized Florida and was eventually executed in 2002. Rather than portray her as a victim, Theron and filmmaker Patty Jenkins (making her feature directorial debut) probe Wuornos's psychology to understand why a woman murders seven strangers. Christina Ricci co-stars as Wuornos's lover, who later provided evidence against her. Theron gives "one of the greatest performances in the history of the cinema" - Roger Ebert.
