"Erin Brockovich" is a true story. Erin (Julia Roberts) is a struggling and unemployed L.A. woman with a couple of kids who employs an attorney (Albert Finney as Ed Masry) to get a settlement for the accident. Masry fails, but agrees to hire the desperate Brockavich as a secretary. Brockavich is resented by the other women in the office for her revealing clothing, who regard her as a bimbo probably sleeping with Masry. Through pluck and diligence, Erin stumbles upon evidence against PG&E for polluting the small Mohave Desert town of Hinkley with a hazardous chemical. Erin gets Masry to let her go to Hinkley to investigate. She finds numerous pieces of evidence to implicate PG&E, and goes back to L.A. with the evidence. She finds that she has been fired, since Masry didn't exactly agree to let her go off for a week. However, Masry looks at her evidence, and agrees to rehire her at a better salary. More investigation follows, and Erin finally nails the case with paper copies proving that PG&E lied to homeowners. The case is settled for hundreds of millions, and Erin is stunned when Masry gives her a check for $2 million. Good supporting role by Aaron Eckhart as George, a biker neighbor who loves and supports Erin through her ups and downs. A very good movie. Two thumbs up.
