Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer (2005)


This feature-length film examines Aileen's harrowing life, tracing her story from the freezing woods of Michigan to the steamy swamps of Florida, and features her closest friends, her lawyers and even her estranged birth mother. At the heart of the film are the astonishing, unique, troubled interviews Broomfield filmed with Wuornos in prison, including her last, defiant words before execution.
