Series: Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
This movie, inspired by actual events of David and Goliath proportions, demonstrates the power of determination, the reality of first impressions, and the importance of balance.
Erin Brockovich, for which Julia Roberts won the 2000 Best Actress Academy Award, is based on events from Brockovich s life. Brockovich bullied her way into a clerking job at the law offices of Masry & Vititoe, where she discovered medical records in a real estate case file. Her investigation into the deteriorating health of residents in Hinkley, California, would test her resolve, her motherhood, and her integrity.
This study will help you discuss the deeper themes of the movie: How does Erin overcome epic obstacles? How does the movie portray the power of determination? What does Erin Brockovich learn about balancing work and personal life? What are the advantages and disadvantages of first impressions?
