Synopsis

Meryl Streep is on terrific form as Karen Silkwood - the worker at an Oklahoma plutonium processing plant who is purposefully contaminated to prevent her exposing blatant worker safety violations at the plant. The circumstances of her death are still under debate to this day. Nominated for five Oscars, the controversial movie also featured a break-out performance from Cher as her buddy Dolly.
