 A David and Goliath fight against industrial water pollution.

Desperate for work, unskilled Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts), single parent of three, takes a relatively inconsequential job as a legal assistant in a California law firm for low wages. While organising some paperwork pertaining to real estate cases, she is puzzled when she notices medical records in one of the files. On a whim, she does a little investigating of her own, and comes to suspect that land purchased by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) is the same land on which chromium contamination resulted from PG&E’s environmentally irresponsible actions.

Examination of local water records and interviews with residents ill from exposure to poisonous chromium confirm Erin’s suspicions and she quickly finds herself involved in one of the biggest class action lawsuits in American history against a multi-billion dollar corporation.

Erin Brockovich will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will make you stand up and cheer. Erin Brockovich is the feel-good movie of the year.”
The New York Times

“The film zeroes in on a woman’s voyage of self-discovery brought about by a passionate conviction that a serious wrong must be righted.”
