Roberts plays Erin Brockovich’s real life crusade against a power company- Pacific Gas and Electric. Her research uncovered the industrial poisoning of a city’s water supply which resulted in the largest settlement paid in a direct action lawsuit. Film is directed by Steven Soderbergh and cast members include David Brisbin, Albert Finney and Conchata Ferrell.
Erin is who she is and doesn’t change for anybody – which is what makes her such a remarkable individual. She can be in a situation where she’s completely out of place and have no awareness of that and just focus on what the issue is at hand.
