The film that saw bombshell Charlize Theron transform herself into a homely prostitute and later walk away with a Best Actress Academy Award, Monster tells the true story of Aileen Wuornos, a woman who faces rejection from mainstream society after a life of abuse, hard-living, and street-walking, leading her to go on a murderous rampage with her lesbian lover (Christina Ricci) in tow. The debut film from director Patty Jenkins comes to DVD in widescreen. The original English soundtrack has been mastered in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and is complimented by optional English subtitles. Along with the film, the disc includes an interview with Jenkins and composer BT as well as a making-of featurette that gives viewers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the production process. The package is rounded out by a television ad spot for the film. Monster is also available in a two-pack with Aileen: The Life and Death of a Serial Killer, a documentary about Wuornos from filmmaker Nick Broomfield.

Grabs you from the start and only gets better. I can't say enough about Charlize Theron. She is absolutely amazing in this chilling role and Christina Ricca has a great supporting role. A must see movie.

It has been a long time since I have seen such an outstanding performance by an actress in a film. Charlize Theron does a magnificent job in her portrayal of Aileen Wuornos. She deserves every bit of praise she's received for this role. It is an intriguing spite of the outcome. A very well done film. Very well done !

This is one of the best movies I seen all year, it just feels so real, I couldn't not take my eyes of it!!

This is by far the best movie I have ever seen. As a very critical viewer such as myself, I definately give this movie 5 stars. Charlize Theron's dedication to the film is absolutely amazing. For someone to have gained 30 pounds, shave their eyebrows, and fry their hair, it would've been an insult for her to have not gotten a Golden Globe. GREAT gift idea. You go, Patty Jenkins.

Charlize Theron's portrayal of Aileen Wuornos is absolutely OUTSTANDING!!! She really dug deep into her heart and gave it all she had. I love this movie so much. I bought the regular and Special Edition, with deleted scenes that just make you feel- what have done with your life, this woman at least had a dream, a small one, but nonetheless a dream.
