Notebook Reviews: ERIN BROCKOVICH

Steven Soderbergh – 2000

4.5 out of 5 stars

The brilliant Steven Soderbergh takes what should have been a TV movie starring a former Charlie’s Angel star and turns it into an engrossing A-list feature.

Erin Brockovich is a brilliant true-life tale of justice, starring a never better Julia Roberts in the title role. The actress is both likeable and believable and she fully deserved the Oscar win. Albert Finney is also great as her exasperated boss. 

Maybe fifteen or so minutes could have been trimmed, but this is griping stuff nonetheless. Erin Brockovich is fantastic entertainment.
