Aileen Wuornos, Monster
This crime drama, based on the real life of female serial killer Aileen Wuornos, was hard to watch and sad. With Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci giving excellent performances that ushered an attachment to the characters, it’s no wonder this movie received so much critical acclaim when it came out in 2003.
But we’re not here to talk about how good the actual movie was. We’re talking about lesbians who break your heart. And when Selby (Ricci) does the moral thing and turns in her lover, the sad is serious. Aileen is convicted and executed by lethal injection and this movie is definitely not one you can just turn on to have in the background. Because there is a risk of drowning in your own tears.
