An unemployed single mother becomes a legal assistant and almost single-handedly brings down a California energy company accused of polluting a town’s water supply. Her photographic memory and dogged persistence drives her opponents to despair and allows her to win.
Screenwriter Susannah Grant dramatised the true story of Erin Brockovich. The single mother’s investigation revealed that Pacific Gas and Electric had knowingly contaminated the groundwater of Hinkley, California, with highly toxic Chromium VI for decades. In 1996, the corporation was ordered to pay the largest amount of damages in US history to that time: $333 million.
