Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Halle Berry, Heath Ledger, Peter Boyle, Sean
"Puffy" Combs, Mos Def; Directed by: Marc Forster
Director Marc Forster, winner of Best Feature at Slamdance
for his debut film Loungers (1996) and the "Someone to Watch" Independent Spirit
Award for his indie drama, Everything Put Together (2000), follows up
those acclaimed projects with this intense, racially charged romance. Billy Bob
Thornton stars as Georgia prison guard Hank Grotowski, a hard-drinking racist
ex-cop whose father, Buck (Peter Boyle), is dying of emphysema and whose son,
Sonny (Heath Ledger), works the execution detail at the prison's death
row. When Sonny commits suicide, Hank is devastated and quits his job, spiraling
into a deep depression until, one night, he comes to the aid of Leticia (Halle
Berry), a beautiful African-American woman whose son, Tyrell (Coronji Calhoun),
has been hit by a car. When Tyrell dies, Leticia and Hank find themselves to be
unexpected soul mates linked together by tragic grief. It's not long before Hank
discovers that Leticia is the widow of Lawrence Musgrove (Sean Combs), the man
whose execution by electric chair he and his late son helped to orchestrate.
Monster's Ball (2001) is based on a screenplay by actors Milo Addica and
Will Rokos, who spent five years developing their script into a feature. Their
title refers to the name of an English tradition requiring jailers to throw a
party for a condemned man on the night before his death.
