Meryl Streep is "stunning" (The New York Times) in this shocking true story about one woman's struggle against a huge corporation. Nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Actress (Streep) and Best Supporting Actress (Cher), this daring, provocative and critically acclaimed drama just "shouldn't be missed" (Newsweek)!
Karen Silkwood (Streep) lives a free-spirited existence with two friends (Kurt Russell and Cher) who work with her at an Oklahoma nuclear facility. It's only when she discovers she's been exposed to radiation that Karen's conscience awakens, and soon she is digging for evidence of wrongdoing at her company. But her sudden zeal for safer working conditions may come at a high price as she alienates friends...and possibly even puts her own life in peril.
