The story of Karen Silkwood, a metallurgy worker at a plutonium processing plant who was purposefully contaminated, psychologically tortured and possibly murdered to prevent her from exposing blatant worker safety violations at the plant.
Four women whose husbands are in prison come together; at first, for emotional support; later, they devise a scheme to rob a bank. This takes up a large part of the film and it is particularly inspired and funny. The actual heist involves our four likable heroines dressing in mens tuxedos (hence, in part, the title of the film). If you love 'caper' films, you'll really go for this! (Note: not on tape and not often rerun on TV so keep an eye out for it.)
