A great movie for women who need to be inspired and men who want to see a lot of cleavage is Erin Brockovich. This is a true story about a smart, sensitive, sexy and sassy file clerk named Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts) who works in an attorney’s office. She reads a file about an electric company that is trying to purchase a home from a family that has been sick with headaches, blood disease, and cancer for years. She asks her boss Ed Masery, if she could do a little digging and try to find out why an electric company named TG&E would want to buy a dilapidated old house in the middle of nowhere. Ed doesn’t think she will find anything, but tells her to check it out. During her investigation she finds out that hundreds of people who live on the land next to TG&E are sick and dying. (In fact, I uncovered the fact that if you are a beautiful woman like Erin and wear a low cut top and a short skirt, you can find out almost anything you want. I would probably be the first one to tell her!) She insists that Ed should file a class action lawsuit against the multi-billion dollar electric company. He is reluctant to proceed, saying he doesn’t have the money to take on a big corporation and he doesn’t want to lose his small law firm. Of course, Erin is a hard woman to say no to and he proceeds with the lawsuit. This drama is entertaining, funny and wonderfully compassionate. The down side was Erin’s bad language – that and the skimpy outfits she was wearing made me definitely wish I were deaf instead of blind. I give this uplifting film a B rating.

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
