Aileen Wuornos è una prostituta. Un giorno, poiché un suo cliente tenta di usarle violenza, lei reagisce e per difendersi lo uccide. Il tentato stupro scatena in lei una reazione che la spinge, in seguito, a commettere altri omicidi. Ma il desiderio di Aileen è solo quello di essere amata, e l'unica via per la salvezza potrebbe essere l'amore di Selby, la sola che nella sua vita le ha dimostrato attenzione. Ma Aileen non è una donna fortunata e per trattenere Selby con sé diventa la prima donna serial killer. Condannata per l'omicidio di sette uomini, Aileen è stata poi giustiziata in Florida, dopo 12 anni di reclusione nel braccio della morte.
Critics have universally praised Charlise Theron's performance in Monster and the praise, for once, is astonishingly deserved. The gorgeous star of The Italian Job and The Cider House Rules vanishes into the character of Aileen Wuornos, a real-life serial killer and prostitute who murdered at least seven men in Florida. Monster traces her relationship with a young woman named Selby (Christina Ricci), which intertwines with Wuornos's murder spree. This remarkable movie finds compassion for Wuornos but unflinchingly faces her brutal crimes; Theron expresses this woman's horrific life history without softening her terrifying, dead-eyed stare. This is a gripping, devastating performance, a physical and psychological transformation comparable to Robert DeNiro's in Raging Bull. The movie's moral and emotional complexity wouldn't succeed without this searing performance--but succeed it does, and it will stick with you for some time afterwards. Those interested in the back story may also want to seek out Nick Broomfield's documentaries on Wuornos. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Film does have brutal moments that make you cringe bestowed on Aileen by a Misogynist, and pang of Guilt that Aileen felt on one Victim who tried to talk to her and being sympathetic. It's all there. sweet romance, Serial Murder, and One Woman's Life that is a tragic nightmare from the beginning to the very end. This movie will always stand the tests of time
