Aro Favourite Monster


USA 2003, 109 minutes
Dir. Patty Jenkins
Rating: [R18] Contains violence,sexual violence and offensive language
Genres: Suspense/Crime, Drama / Serial Killers

Topics: Biopic.


Aroview: Powerful dramatization of the story of female serial-killer Aileen Wournos, strong enough to support an astonishing, Oscar-winning performance by Charlize Theron.

Matching the performance, and complementing the documentary films made on the same subject, the film builds an entirely credible psychological profile and trajectory of events based on a crime spree that took seven male victims in the 1980s.

Making a sympathetic case for Wournos as a victim and outcast of society, the film carries the integrity and emotional weight of another indie hit about a real-life human tragedy, BOY’S DON’T CRY.
