Erin Brockovich is one of Julia Roberts’s best movies. It follows the life of a smart, young American woman with no husband and three young children. The movie has everything that a successful story needs: lots of action, strong people, and a happy ending. But most surprising of all, Erin’s story is true.
Erin was in trouble. She had no money, no job, no husband, and three young children. Life is difficult when you are a single mother. But Erin loved her young family, and she wanted to make their lives happy and comfortable. Day after day she read the local newspapers and called for jobs. But every phone call and every interview was unsuccessful. It was time to try something new.
Erin visited her lawyer, Ed Massry. “I’m smart, I’m hardworking, and I’ll do anything,” she told him. “Please, give me a job!” It was a strange way to find a job. But Erin did what she had to do. She wanted to be a good person and a good mother.

More importantly, why were the homeowners’ health papers in the same boxes? It was a mystery.
Erin could not sleep that night. She was worried. Did PG&E want to hide something? Were the people of Hinkley safe? Erin was already a busy woman with her own problems. She had little time to worry about other people. But deep inside, Erin felt that something was wrong. Could she solve the mystery? She needed more information. The next day she spoke to her boss, Ed. With his help, Erin started looking more closely at the papers…
