Aileen Wurnos (Charlize Theron) has spent a majority of her life working as a prostitute. She starts a realtionship with Selby Wall (Christina Ricci) and that's when the killings begin.
Wow, Theron got really ugly for this. But apart from that, she gives a hell of a performance. The scene where Aileen confesses to Selby about her first murder has to be one of the most affecting scenes I've watched. Although the facts aren't entirely right, Monster shows us that an ordinary person can become infamous from one single act.
My Rating: ****1/2
