What a strong character! You need guts to submit and win a lawsuit against a group of corporate polluters.

Easily the best Steven Soderbergh film ever made. Easily the best Julia Roberts film ever made. ERIN BROCKOVICH is one of those films that hasn't remained in the public's conscience but should. I don't dare say too much for fear of spoiling it, but this David-and-Goliath tale of a down-on-her-luck single mother who follows a hunch is spectacular. I highly recommend everybody watch it, absolutely everyone.

It is interesting especially learning about the health effects on the people living near the plant.

Excellent movie. Julia Roberts does a fantastic job as Erin Brockovich. A woman who had the courage to fight for the rights of others. Highly recommend.

Julia Roberts did a stand up job as the character Erin Brockovich in this true eventful story!

You should also see 'Last call at the Oasis' also available from GVPL. More on the badness of big companies and governments that are too chicken to take on big industry over polluting the lakes, rivers, streams and underground aquifers in the USA.

One of the best recent movies - hilarious in certain parts as well as effectively showing how a company can be destructive and not care about the lives of people and the environment - excellently acted by Julia Roberts and Albert Finney
