In my opinion, Erin Brockovich is a great film. It's on Channel 5 at 9pm tonight. Julia Roberts is exactly right for the eponomous role of 'spirited heroine', as Alan Jones describes it in his review in the Radio Times. And Albert Finney is a perennial favourite of mine - and very likely one of your favourite actors too. Do read the review!
The film's story is based on real-life corporate crime in America, in which toxic industrial waste water contaminated the drinking water of a local community. Erin Brockovich's straight-forward and genuine concern about the devastating harm done to the victims wins her their respect and impels her to fight for them in the courts, there to win financial reparation in a historic legal case. (I have made brief reference to this film in one of my previous posts.)
