"...Exquisitely structured and written....[Streep] conveys a fantastic sense of earthiness....Her performance is a thrill to behold..."
USA Today - 09/14/2004
"Meryl Streep, at her best here, makes you root for this lost soul."
Empire - 11/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]n the hands of Mike Nichols, and with a truly impressive cast including a top-of-her-game Meryl Streep...this is elevated into top-notch conspiracy territory."

Plot Synopsis:

This dramatic film is based on the true story of Karen Silkwood, a rank-and-file worker at a plutonium factory, who was accidentally exposed to a lethal dose of radiation. Historically, the company downplayed employee's complaints about radiation sickness, much to Karen's frustration. Her own ordeal made Karen an activist. When she was about to go public with evidence of the company's poor safety record, the corporate powers went to extreme lengths to ensure that Karen's story was never told.
