JULIA ROBERTS WEEKEND ON NBC - Three-time Golden Globe winner Julia Roberts ("Pretty Woman," "Ocean's 11") stars in this stirring and unconventional drama based on true events, as the twice-divorced mother of three who sees an injustice, takes on the bad guy and wins. Following a car accident - in which she was not at fault -- Erin finds herself in a tight spot when her attorney fails to land her a settlement to help her financial difficulties. With nowhere else to turn to, Erin convinces her attorney Ed Masry (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Albert Finney, "The Gathering Storm") to hire her at his law firm. While working, Erin takes on a $300 million case that not only reinvents her life, but proves her strength to triumph over insurmountable odds. This three-time Oscar nominated movie was directed by Oscar winner Steve Soderbergh ("Ocean's 11").
