What a wonderful film! The fact that it's a true story is even better. Erin Brockovich is an incredible woman. She raises three great children and needs a job to support her family. She is a smart, dedicated, out spoken person who gets things done. Her character seems wild at first because of the stress she goes through trying to feed her family but you later find out what a fantastic person she is. So caring and kind, eager to help those in need. This movie is perfect for teens who don't mind a lot of cursing and parents who don't mind allowing it. Erin swears frequently throughout the whole film and she drops an "F" bomb at least in every other sentence! There are other semi-harsh words used more than once like [email protected]
, [email protected]
, B*tch, Stupid, Sh*t, F-you, F-off...etc. Lots of yelling and arguing too. Erin sometimes swears in front of her kids (no f-words though). Erin has a short romantic relationship with her caring, motorcyclist neighbor, they kiss sometimes. They're seen kissing and cuddling in bed at one point. Erin is seen in her bra for a minute. There isn't much violence except the stories of people mysteriously dying or getting ill, a photo of dead chickens seen, stories may frighten younger kids. There is also some smoking and drinking (not much). All around terrific story with a lot of positive messages, a great role model and a lot you or your child can learn from.
