Aro Recommended Erin Brockovich

 

USA 2000, 126 minutes
Dir. Steven Soderbergh
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Courtroom, Girl-centric

Topics: Eco-friendly.

 

Aroview: An interesting and successful marriage of a Hollywood star vehicle (Julia Roberts) and independent credentials (dir. Soderbergh), that takes an earthy, 70s-style approach to tell the true story of the mother-of-three who uncovered and initiated indictments against corporate giant PG & E for contaminating a residential water supply.

An aptly salty, larger-than-life script befits the feisty-but-good-hearted title character played by Roberts, a showcase role that packs her frame into low-cut blouses and short skirts, and a just-as-head-turning take-no-crap attitude. Albert Finney lends his esteemed pedigree as her crumpled lawyer boss, while Aaron Eckhart in the bikie boyfriend role is a deadringer for Sam Elliott's in MASK.
