Silkwood is a pretty good dramatic movie which tells the story of a nuclear plant worker who suspects that the company she works for is compromising safety in order to make its deadlines, and placing employees at risk.

The performances seen here are incredible, and a shining example of why Meryl Streep is regarded as one of the finest actresses of her time. Kurt Russel, Cher, and even Craig T. Nelson, as well as a host of many other supporting characters, blend their performances with hers to make the movie believable and to make you forget about them as actors; allowing you to focus on the telling of the story.

Even though this movie was made in 1983 and takes place in the early 70's, you don't feel like the story is out of place or that it hasn't aged well. The theme of a corporation looking out for its own interests over those of its employees spans the years, as it was happening before this time period, and continues today.
