As Ben Is Back releases in UK cinemas, Close-up Culture list off our five favourite films starring Julia Roberts.

5) Charlie Wilson’s War (2007)


Roberts is in fearsome form as she plays a Republican socialite in Mike Nichols’ entertaining political drama.

4) Notting Hill (1999)


Roberts and Hugh Grant charm like few others can to make the most of this wittily written story.

3) Pretty Woman (1990)


A star-making performance from Roberts in this classic rom-com about a Hollywood sex worker who strikes up a meaningful relationship with a wealthy businessman.

2) Ocean’s Eleven (2001)


Steven Soderbergh’s remake of the 1960 classic sees Roberts fill Angie Dickinson’s legendary shoes.

1) Erin Brockovich (2000)


Roberts won an Academy Award for her portrayal of a down-on-her-luck mother who sues a California power company. Another impressive collaboration with Soderbergh.
