3rd 101 Things in 1001 Days, from the list of 50 movies never nominated for an Academy Award.
A local news reporter (Jane Fonda) and her crew accidentally stumble upon a problem when they're profiling a nuclear reactor as part of a puff piece on local energy providers. Fonda's anti-nuke cameraman (a young and hairy Michael Douglas) steals the film when the station refuses to air it.
Fonda's digging uncovers a cover-up at the nuclear plant and a duped, loyal employee. The power company has a deep-pocketed interest in keeping things under control, and the reporters race against time to get the truth out before the next big accident happens.
In reading up about the movie, I learned about the coincidence that it was released just weeks before an almost identical event happened at Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania. I thought it was okay. Very dated, but interesting enough to keep my attention. We don't hear as much about nuclear power as we used to.
