MONSTER
2003, Newmarket Films, 109 min, Dir: Patty Jenkins

Charlize Theron is riveting in her Oscar-winning performance as one of America's first female serial killers, Aileen Wuornos. A highway prostitute in Florida, Wuornos suffers one too many degradations and ultimately snaps, killing her clients so that she can steal their money without offering up her own body. Christina Ricci co-stars as Selby, Wuornos' lover, who dissolves into a jittery, frightened mess during the course of the nine-month killing spree.
