Plot

A dark tale based on the true story of Aileen Wuornos, one of America's first female serial killers. Wuornos had a difficult and cruel childhood plagued by abuse and drug use in Michigan. She became a prostitute by the age of thirteen, the same year she became pregnant. She eventually moved to Florida where she began earning a living as a highway prostitute--servicing the desires of semi-truck drivers. The tale focuses on the nine month period between 1989 and 1990, during which Wuornos had a lesbian relationship with a woman named Selby. And during that very same time, she also began murdering her clientele in order to get money without using sex. This turned the tables on a rather common phenomena of female highway prostitutes being the victims of serial killers--instead Wuornos, herself, carried out the deeds of a cold-blooded killer.
 

Comments

Not that great! Gut feeling tells me that they left some of the truth out of this story!They made the killer look nicer, and less crazy than real life.Who can say what makes one do these horrible deeds.Genes or environment whatever.I am sure there is a point where people snap in life.I found some of the film interesting, but the rest of the story has a 70's misunderstood bad guy theme to it.I find working at the post office with some very bitter people in it scary and unsettling, they have a mean streak or hatred for the world I found missing in this film.The movie 'In cold blood' is a better portrayal for this topic.Some of her victims were not the best quality people, but I sure hate to ever get in the way of this enraged, bitter woman.I find bitter people create more carnage, where I prefer the situation defused.Don't bother with this one.5 out of 10
