Details

Struggling TV reporter Kimberly Wells (Jane Fonda) sees an opportunity to break into hard news after she and her cameraman (Michael Douglas) witness a near meltdown in a nuclear power station. But the network refuses to air their report, whilst the plant's bosses will stop at nothing to ensure information on the incident remains undisclosed. Plant engineer Jack Godell (Jack Lemmon) is determined to expose the cover-up, however, and persuades Kimberley to help him.

Both Lemmon and Fonda earned Oscar nominations for their performances, in a prescient film that saw reality overtaking it just weeks after its theatrical release with the breakdown of the nuclear reactor on Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania.

 Blu-ray special edition, limited to 3,000 copies.
