Meryl Streep is “stunning” (The New York Times) in this shocking true story about one woman's struggle against a huge corporation. Nominated for five Academy Awards®, including Best Actress (Streep) and Best Supporting Actress (Cher), this daring, provocative and critically acclaimed drama just “shouldn't be missed” (Newsweek)! Karen Silkwood (Streep) lives a free-spirited existence with two friends (Kurt Russell and Cher) who work with her at an Oklahoma nuclear facility. It's only when she discovers she's been exposed to radiation that Karen's conscience awakens, and soon she is digging for evidence of wrongdoing at her company. But her sudden zeal for safer working conditions may come at a high price as she alienates friends and possibly even puts her own life in peril.

This collection is not just for Cher fans. I think anyone that enjoys entertainment would like it. There are 6 DVDs in the collection to provide hours of entertainment. I'm not sure that I have a favorite of the bunch, but if I had to choose I would go with Mermaids. I think that Cher is so extraordinary because she has accomplished so much and is still herself while doing it all.
This collection was released at the perfect time for anyone who enjoys Cher.
Cher: The Film Collection was available November 2nd for $49.98 (Canada: $59.98).
