Monster’s Ball: Halle Berry

In this movie about devastation and transformation, Berry stars as Leticia Musgrove. She’s a woman who recently lost her husband to the electric chair, and then her teenage son to a fatal car accident. While on a quest to heal and thrive, Berry finds a new unexpected love and life with a cop who knew her husband, Hank Gotowski (Billy Bob Thorton). While the sex scenes in the film were a bit too much to some, you can’t deny how stellar a performance Berry gave in this Oscar winning role.
