Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing around here... it's Theater Thursday! Since the beginning of this blog, I have always had Theater Thursday and featured a movie that is currently available on dvd or available to watch online. If you love a movie and want people to know about it, grab the button and join in! 

This week's featured movie is, Erin Brockovich.
Julia Roberts stars as Erin Brockovich. Erin is a single mothers of three young kids who after a car crash is strapped for cash. Desperately needing a job she stalks out the lawyer who made sure she got nothing during her car accident trial. After approaching him, Ed (Albert Finney) gives her a job. 

Trying to find work to do inside his legal office, she begins to investigate a case involving the water contamination by a huge company, Pacific Gas & Electric. Erin gets emotionally invested after meeting with several families who have been poisoned because of PG&E and their practices about dumping their chemicals. 

Erin and Ed go up against the huge corporation and take on several hundred clients to get what's right and fair. This is based on a true story and Julia Roberts earned an Oscar for her performance.

This is a good movie - And Erin (we're on a first name basis) does an ad on tv here and when she introduces herself, I'm always like "wow that is not how I pictured her...why is that..." and then I remember because I'm picturing Julia.
