The individuals who make a difference in society are the ones who's get big actors and actresses to play them in films. Erin Brokivch was one woman who made a great difference on our environment. Brockovich is an unemployed single mother, troubling to find a job. Erin also failed a lawsuit against a doctor in a car accident she was in. With no alternative, she successfully convinces her lawyer to give her a job in compensation for the loss. While no one understands her, with her trashy clothes and outgoing words, that soon changes when she begins to investigate a suspicious real estate case involving the Pacific Gas & Electric Company. What she discovers is that the company is trying to buy land that was contaminated by a deadly toxic waste that the company is illegally dumping and, in turn, poisoning the residents in the area. As she digs deeper, Erin finds herself leading point in a series of events that would involve her law-firm in one of the biggest lawsuits in American history. Julia Roberts does great acting by playing this warrior of a woman. She shows different sides of Brokovich while bringing her bravery to life. Julia Roberts is both hilarious and deep by showing what being a struggling person is like. The determination she endures in this role helps bring her characters personality to life. A great role! Steven Soderbergh does a fun job of directing by making this film both enjoyable and moving. He uses the best of his abilities in each shot and brings a true story back to life in different settings and environments. The whole look of this film is so realistic, from the cooperation's to her trashy houses, it's a true story brought to life remarkably. Much credit is given to Susannah Grant fro making a great story that touches something true. I would have liked the film to be a bit shorter and not focus so much on Erin Brokovich's life before the law case. Her character can get a bit irritating at times, but is remarkable for the most part. I also would have liked it to be much more dramatic to really show the gravity of the situation. "Erin Brokovich" is a bold true story that shows social bravery and corruption.
