It’s a quality true-life mystery-exposé that doesn’t come off as tabloid trash or Oliver Stone hysteria — the true story of Karen Silkwood is told without cooking the books. The all-superstar cast is something too — Meryl Streep, Cher and Kurt Russell. Only a fine director like Mike Nichols could steer this one into good entertainment & memorable cinema territory.

Silkwood, 1983.

Directed by Mike Nichols

Starring Meryl Streep, Kurt Russell, Cher, Craig T. Nelson, Fred Ward, Ron Silver, David Strathairn, M. Emmet Walsh


Silkwood, the 1983 film from Mike Nichols that was nominated for five Academy Awards, arrives on a new Blu-ray from Kino Lorber that features an interview with producer Michael Hausman. Meryl Streep, Kurt Russell, and Cher are the main stars of this film that’s based on a true story.

Silkwood is a movie about isolation. Based on a true story, it tells the tale of Karen Silkwood (Meryl Streep), who works at an Oklahoma nuclear material processing facility with her boyfriend, Drew (Kurt Russell), and roommate, Dolly (Cher). After becoming contaminated by plutonium, she becomes a union activist for safety issues at the plant, much to the chagrin of some co-workers who don’t want her to rock the boat.
