I have seen this movie years ago and want to see it again. Its a good movie and I enjoy the actors in it very much. It would be good to have a remake of the movie about what we know about the company now. It would be more dramatic I am sure. That company got off too easy for what was happening in that plant.

I first saw this movie when it originally came out in 1983. Given that Kerr-McGee settled out of court to pay Karen's estate $1.3 million, it's clear that this company was in the wrong. I wondered in 1983 and now just how dirty that Kerr-McGee was. What would have happened if Karen Silkwood had been actually able to blow the whistle, resulting in a major investigation into Kerr-McGee's actions? I wonder how far its illegal activities and coverups went? It would be interesting to have a remake filmed, including everything that is known now as compared to what was in the original film. BTW, Meryl Streep did an amazing job and should have received an Oscar for her work in this film.
