Having seen a few photos of serial killer Aileen Wuornos, I was surprised when the goddess Charlize Theron was cast to play her. Aileen was a beast in every sense of the word. Ebert & Not Siskel reviewed Monster on this weeks program and had numerous clips from the movie. You simply will not recognize Charlize. She gained weight for the role and I suppose other devices were used to change her appearance. But those eyes...they were truly frightening. Ebert couldn't say enough good things about Miss Theron in this role. He said he didn't change position or take notes he was so involved in the film. Monster opens in New York on Dec. 24th and then elsewhere in January.
