Synopsis:
A prostitute since she was 13, Aileen Wuornos (Theron) is a drifter with no friends and no family. Alone in a Florida bar and on the brink of suicide, she meets a young woman, Selby Wall (Ricci). Misfits thrown together by chance, they're kindred spirits - Aileen, the victim of a tragic and abusive upbringing; Selby, rejected and abandoned by her parents. Aileen is desperate to sustain the relationship that soon develops between the two of them and earns money the only way she can - turning tricks. Then, one fateful night a John turns violent. In self-defence Wuornos shoots him dead and unleashes inside herself a rage that will compel her to kill...and kill again.
Monster is the true and often moving story of the woman who was doomed to become America's first female serial killer

Very moving - Monster review by A

Powerful, moving and emotional piece that really makes you think. I loved the balance in this movie, how she was shown both as extremely vulnerable and same time highly volatile and dangerous. Well-directed, well-shot, well-acted.
