Silkwood ★★★½

After watching Silkwood, I immediately thought of Spotlight. Silkwood tells the story of Karen Silkwood, a nuclear plant employee, who takes action against her company when safety and employee concerns come about. The story is pretty straight forward without a lot of flair. 
The best thing about Silkwood is the acting. Streep is great as usual. A glorious young Kurt Russel graces this movie with multiple shirtless scenes. Overall, I'd recommend this movie, acting is great and Nichols just lets the story tell itself without adding any unneeded flair.
