MONSTER (2003) – AFI Movie Club

Written and directed by AFI Conservatory Alum – and recipient of the Franklin J Schaffner Alumni Medal – Patty Jenkins (AFI Class of 2000), MONSTER (2003) was honored with an AFI AWARD in 2003, recognizing it as one of the year’s most outstanding achievements in the art of the moving image. According to the official rationale, “MONSTER tells the gruesome story of serial killer Aileen Wuornos and manages to find a human being amidst the horror. Writer and director Patty Jenkins brings light to this dark tale of a woman whose tragic story is never condoned but deftly brought to life in all its complexity. Charlize Theron gives a breathtaking performance that ranks among the best of the year.”
