Rated R

Of course it's Theron's show, and the compassion she helps us to extend to Wuornos -- and the beleaguered feminine aspect of anyone -- is unforgettable. Particularly moving is the sequence in which she battles to earn a straight living. The smug judgment and expulsion by her interviewers is something many have felt, and its delivery here drives home the significance of Wuornos's spiral. Simply, it reminds us that when someone is begging for just a tiny handhold, it's probably best to offer it.
