Its been decades (literally) since I saw this film but after talking with co-workers today about Karen Silkwood (today is the anniversary of her death) I began to recollect this movie. From what I remember Janet Margolin was a decent lead actress for this film. THe story wasn't lifted "directly" from the "Silkwood/KerrMcGee" case but you can see the essence of it in the film with its drama based on nuclear power plant, plutonium contamination, corporate coverups and a ending similar to Karen Silkwood's. This film has been lost to the foreign market so it is doubtful I'll get to see it and compare it to Silkwood on a real-time basis but if you happen to catch it, check it out and compare for yourself.
