Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Silkwood (1983)

Karen: I remember in high school her saying, 'Now what'd you want to take that science class for? There's no girls in that science class. You take Home Ec, why don't you? That's the way to meet the nice boys.' 'Mom,' I said, There ain't no boys in Home Ec. The boys are in the science class.' She hated when I said, 'Ain't.'

Happy birthday to Meryl!
This will always be my favorite performance of hers.

SILKWOOD was the moment I honestly began to consider that Ms. Streep had more range than people were acknowledging. I felt Karen Silkwood was a real, normal, mouthy woman who I could run into at the corner store and that SO COOL coming from the high brow, accent queen, mega actress.
