Two Line Reviews - #433

Movie: Erin Brokovich (2000)

Plot: A divorced mother of three small kids tries to get some job to make ends meet. After a stunning revelation, she chases down a huge firm responsible for bringing down an entire town in terms of its people's health. When the race intensifies, she has to make some personal sacrifices to cross the finishing line.

What Works?
  • For a film based on a true story, the presentation is quite entertaining thanks to Soderbergh's simplistic & old-school narrative.
  • Julai Roberts understands she is the bone and flesh of the film and comes up trumps in her role as the determined legal assistant.
  • Her scenes with her boss, played neatly by veteran Albert Finney, where she ends up screaming in temper are winners!
  • The angle that describes her parenting and the sacrifices she had to make is an inspiring story in itself.
Story of a determined sacrifice that is inspiring too!
