Directed by Steven Soderbergh and written by AFI alum Susannah Grant (AFI Class of 1991), ERIN BROCKOVICH (2000) was recognized in the year of its release with an AFI AWARD, naming it among the most outstanding motion pictures of year. According to the official rationale, “this finely-crafted studio picture goes beyond the familiar with humor, texture and a fine attention to detail — an increasingly rare experience. ERIN BROCKOVICH, with its luminescent performance by Julia Roberts, accomplishes what all Hollywood films should aspire to: to excel both as art and as entertainment.” It was also named by AFI as one of the art form’s most inspirational stories, and its title character was counted among cinema’s greatest screen heroes.
