Fairly accurate recounting of the story of Karen Silkwood, the Oklahoma nuclear-plant worker who blew the whistle on dangerous practices at the Kerr-McGee plant and who died under circumstances which are still under debate.Written by

According to Cher, when she and Meryl Streep hung out together, they talked mostly "about our kids, music people, where we wanted to live, what I wanted to do when I grew up. Meryl," she said, "couldn't care less what she wears. I'd tease her about that and she'd tell me to shut up. And she did her own ironing, which drove me insane. She says it keeps her down to earth. I don't know what keeps me down to earth, but it isn't ironing. I send my stuff out." See more »
Just under an hour into the movie, at the conclusion of the scene where Drew (Kurt Russel) pours the contents of a can of beer over his head before leaving the house, watch carefully as he then walks out of the house and out onto the porch. He can be seen striking his head with considerable force on the porch, hard enough to produce an audible noise and would surely have caused a considerable amount of pain. In the next immediate scene and thereafter, no physical sign of injury can been seen on the actor. See more »
Even though you already now how the movie ends just by reading the taglines, there is still a strong element of suspense in this film, about Karen Silkwood who suspects that the lives of hereself and her co-workers are in danger. It is a well written film, and masterfully acted by Streep and her castmates. This one makes Julia Roberts in Erin Brochievich look really bad.
