Meryl Monday: Miss Streep’s character gets contaminated by radiation in “Silkwood” is so satisfying doing the research for Meryl Mondays because I get to be reminded of the astonishing work of Miss Streep from the mid-80s.

In 1983′s Silkwood, Meryl plays Karen Silkwood, a woman who died in a suspicious car accident while investigating alleged wrongdoing at the Kerr-McGee plutonium plant where she worked.

Meryl, of course was nominated for an Oscar for her performance and she, of course, lost! The film also gave Cher her first big role in a major studio film and earned her an Oscar nod as well. Kurt Russell played Silkwood’s boyfriend in the film.

In these powerful scenes, Karen finds out she has been contaminated at the plant.
