Slide 1 of 10
Leticia Musgrove and Hank Grotowski, Monster’s Ball?
Played by: Halle Berry and Billy Bob Thornton
An aging, racist, seemingly heartless prison guard falls for an African-American beauty whose husband’s execution he oversees. Brought together by mutual grief over the deaths of their spouses and sons, the unlikely duo’s bond grows stronger with (hyper-realistic) sex, booze, and chocolate ice cream. —Maane Khatchatourian
