Silkwood
Karen Silkwood knew plenty about the nuclear industry.
Her story is as terrifying as a meltdown...

Silkwood (1983) - 134 minutes
Silkwood at Amazon.com

Like most people in her Oklahoma home town, Karen Silkwood worked in a facility that produced highly radioactive plutonium. The plant balanced profits against worker safety, and Karen herself participated in this charade of economic survival...until the inevitable happened to her. Exposed to a lethal dose of plutonium poisoning, Karen faced the indifference and denial of her company.

Too spirited to be silenced, she voiced her protests and became a threat to her company...to an entire industry and the government agencies that monitored it. One day she left to meet with a reporter, needing to blow the whistle on the dangerous practices of her plant. But due to a mysterious car crash, she never go there. Was her death accidental, or was she murdered by powers as potentially lethal as the atom?
