Article Excerpt:

JohnandMattheware watching every single live-action film starring Meryl Streep.


#9 — Karen Silkwood,a real-life chemical technician turned labor union activist and whistleblower.

"Karen Silkwood has come to stand for so many things to so many people that I had to start all over again in trying to play her as a person,not a symbol.I really don't think we can know much about people after they're not there to tell us.All their real,real secrets die with them.At the end of this whole experience of making this movie,I thought about those minutes before Karen's car went off the road,and I missed her."
