According to ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY Julia Roberts could be seen reshooting the closing scene of THE PELICAN BRIEF a mere three weeks before its scheduled opening. Per an article in PREMIERE magazine, Roberts was instrumental in casting leading man Denzel Washington. Roberts runs her own production company which is based in New York City. She is one of the most popular female box office draws in Hollywood history. Her brother Eric is also a known actor. Roberts was once married to country musician-turned-actor Lyle Lovett.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A celebration of liquid brown eyes and serious star quality....[Roberts and Washington] make the movie shine..."
    New York Times

    "...A taut, intellectual thriller....Roberts is simply terrific....Washington also impresses..."

    "...Roberts returns from her time off with a newly confident grace....She's as luminous as a dream of a movie star. As for Washington, it's doubtful whether there's a smarter leading man working today..."
