Charlize Theron is stunning in this disturbing movie about a serial killer, based on the true story of Aileen Carol Wuornos. She more than deserved the Golden Globe.

Not for the faint of heart – or ear! – this is a gritty look at the downward spiral of a woman who finally learns what it means to choose. The story is frank, seeking to understand without excusing. But above all else, Theron’s performance is fantastic: as Roger Ebert wrote, “This is one of the greatest performances in the history of the cinema.”
