Alieen Wurnos- The Selling Of A Serial Killer Film Poster


Florida, 1992. Aileen Wuornos is claimed to be the world’s first female serial killer. A hitch-hiking prostitute, she killed seven of her clients, and is now on death row in the State of Florida facing the electric chair. The three main characters are Aileen Wuornos, whom we see in prison, her born-again Christian mother, Eileen Pralee, who just adopted Aileen Wuornos last year, and her lawyer, Steve Glazer. The film raises a number of questions about official corruption, not least of which is whether in fact she is a serial killer at all, or if that label is just a commercial means of selling Aileen Wuornos and her story. Charlize Theron won the 2004 Oscar for Best Actress for her portrayal of Wuornos in the film 'Monster'. From award-winning British documentary maker Nick Broomfield.
