MONDAY MOVIE MEME
Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Women & Prison...
Nicole at The Madlab Post is all things Indy Film. She's got lots to say about her industry of choice and it would serve you well to stop by. She suggested a topic for us and we thought it best to go along, for fear of being locked up if we disobeyed. We've covered prison movies, heists and jail breaks before, but we've never focused on the fairer sex and their portrayal in the prison system. Nicole wants to focus on women who are held captive or imprisoned during a film. I would broaden that scope to include women who hold roles as guards and captors. There is one film that leaped to mind instantly, and that's the only one we're going to highlight today. Share on your blog movies that feature female prisoners, guards, or those who are accused and on their way to the Big House, linking back here. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
- So who would have thought that the sparklingly beautiful Charlize Theron could play the role of rough around the edges, utterly damaged and unstable Aileen Wuornos so convincingly in this 2003 "based on the true story" account of her transformation from prostitute to serial killer? I thought the story was tragic, the psyche twisted and the movie well done.
