Erin Brockovich

(out of 5)


Excellent biography of the true-life woman who brought about the biggest personal lawsuit case in American legal history.   gives the best performance of her career as Brockovich, a single mother who gets a job working for lawyer  and stumbles across records of a case pertaining to nearby town residents who might have been poisoned by an oil corporation’s faulty dumping methods. Steven Soderbergh continues his habit of filmmaking excellence, proving that even big-budget crowd-pleasers are not anywhere out of his reach, nor do they have to feel like glossy Hollywood sellouts.
