Taglines:
1. She brought a small town to it's feet and a huge corporation to its knees.
2. A Real Woman. A Real Story. A Real Triumph.

Synopsis: Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts) is a twice-divorced single mother who, after losing her lawsuit against a wealthy doctor, forces her lawyer Ed Masry (Albert Finney) to give her a job in his law firm as compensation.

With her revealing clothes and sassy personality (with great one-liners), she gets little respect in the office, until she discovers a cover-up involving a local water company pumping out contaminated water into the local community with disastrous affects. Erin investigates and soon earns the trust and respect of the local residents as she fights for their rights.

With the trust of the locals and the support of her biker-boyfriend George (Aaron Eckhart) Erin and Ed prepare to fight for the largest settlement ever paid out in a direct-action lawsuit in US history.

Based on a true story (and featuring the real Erin Brockovich-Ellis and Ed Masry in cameo roles) this David and Goliath tale obtained an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture and earned Julia Roberts a Best Actress Oscar for her role as Erin.

Steven on Erin Brockovich: "I'm really proud of that film. I was interested in it for a couple of reasons, the main one being her character. I liked its combination of entertainment and social consciousness. It's a Rocky movie, and that's fine as long as you make a good Rocky movie. I think the first Rocky is a really good movie. I tried to keep that in mind. It's a genre film, and my job was to keep out of her way. So in many respects it was really challenging, because I had to restrain myself, and not step between her and the audience, which is often my inclination."
