This box set features the following films:
Steel Magnolias (Dir. Herbert Ross) (1989):
Despite their differences, beautiful Shelby (Julia Roberts), her strong-willed mother M'Lynn (Sally Field), beauty parlour owner Truvy (Dolly Parton), elegant wealthy widow Clairee (Olympia Dukakis), sharp tongued Ouiser (Shirley MacLaine) and mousey newcomer Anelle (Daryl Hannah) enjoy a friendship that spans the boundaries of age and status.
Erin Brokovich (Dir. Steven Soderbergh) (2000):
A real woman. A real story. A real triumph. Julia Roberts stars as Erin Brockovich, a feisty young mother who fought for justice any way she knew how. Desperate for a job to support herself and her three children, she convinces attorney Ed Masry (Albert Finney) to hire her, and promptly stumbles upon a monumental law case against a giant corporation. Now, Erin's determined to take on this powerful adversary even though no law firm has dared to do it before.
My Best Friend's Wedding (Dir. P.J. Hogan) (1997):
Roberts dazzles as commitment-shy Julianne Potter, who suddenly realises she is in love with her best friend Michael (Mulroney). There's just one catch - he's about to marry someone else.
America's Sweethearts (Dir. Joe Roth) ():
Gwen (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Eddie (John Cusack) are America's Sweethearts, two wildly popular celebrities who share their love on and off the screen in this farcical romantic comedy. A messy breakup sends Eddie to a New Age Hollywood healing center and Gwen into the arms of her current affair, a Spanish bohunk short on charm (Hank Azaria). When their relationship troubles begin to threaten their superstar celebrity status and the release of their final film together the studio heads call in legendary press agent Lee Phillips (Billy Crystal) to helm the troubled film's press junket. Julia Roberts costars as Kiki, Gwen's personal assistant and sister who has always lived to please her demanding diva sister. Once overweight and severely self-conscious, Kiki's life revolves around her sister's ridiculous demands in this send up of ego-driven movie star vanity. Phillips manages to gather the warring superstars together at a remote desert location for the all important press junket where his best laid plans begin to unravel in this hysterical parody of the movie industry replete with neurotic actors, eccentric crazed directors (Christopher Walken in a gem of a cameo), maniacal studio heads, and gossip-starved press who will do anything, or anyone, for the next big story.
Mary Reilly (Dir. Stephen Frears) (1996):
Mary (Julia Roberts) is sensitive to the needs and weaknesses of her master, Dr Henry Jekyll (John Malkovich) and is prepared to do almost anything for him. Her trust is a blessing as the doctor embarks on a new, dangerous experiment - one that will bring about a meeting between Mary and Dr Jekyll's sinister assistant Mr Hyde. Although Mary remains devoted to her brilliant but rather reserved employer, she finds herself attracted to the charms of the mysterious Mr Hyde. Together Mary and Mr Hyde share a terrible secret that will cast both fear and danger on the Jekyll household.
Stepmom (Dir. Chris Columbus) (1998):
Jackie (Susan Sarandon) is a divorced mother of two. Isabel (Julia Roberts) is the career minded girlfriend of Jackie's ex-husband Luke (Ed Harris), forced into the role of unwelcome stepmother to their children. But when Jackie discovers she is ill, both women realise they must put aside their differences to find a common ground and celebrate life to the fullest!
