I was really hoping that I would like this film but when I saw it, I was disappointed. I thought that the story was very dull and very slow.

El mayor mérito de esta película es no ser tan melodramática como pudo haber sido, al menos en tono. El director parece más interesado en demostrar que puede crear un drama que se sienta maduro que en cualquier otra cosa.

Description: The unflinching realism and searing performances of Monster's Ball are stunning in all the connotations of the word. Hank (Billy Bob Thornton) and Leticia (Halle Berry) inhabit stark, queasy realities of the contemporary South, he as a death row corrections officer and she as the soon-to-be widow of an inmate (Sean Combs) whose execution Hank helps conduct.

" Halle Berry as Leticia Musgrove and Billy Bob Thornton as Hank Grotowski Leticia stops by Hank's home with a present for him, but he is not there. She meets Buck (Hank’s father), who insults her and implies that Hank is only involved with her because he enjoys sex with black women. Leticia, affected by the remarks, refuses to interact with Hank. After Hank is made aware of Buck's actions, he forces his father out of the house and into a nursing home. (Wikipedia)"
