Synopsis:
Like most of the people in her town, Karen Silkwood (Meryl Streep) worked at the local nuclear plant producing highly radioactive plutonium. Exposed one day to a lethal dose of radiation, Karen faces the blank walls of corporate indifference and denial whilst coming to terms that she will suffer a painful and lingering death as a result of company negligence. As her illness increases, her protest grows louder and she becomes an obvious danger to the powers that be. But Karen is too spirited to be silenced and takes on the Plant with devastating consequences.

A Classic - Silkwood review by CS

Spoiler Alert
20/07/2008

A quality film that is as good as the reviews.  sadly there are no subtitles for this film, which means that if you do have a hearing loss you will find it very difficult to watch, as the film requires a strong understanding of dialogue. Without words most of the film is meaningless.

So sadly for me this was a wasted rental as I could not watch it without subtitles having a hearing loss myself.
