In the 1920s a group of factory workers advocate for safer work conditions after some of their colleagues become ill from radium exposure.
2020, U.S., drama, 1h 42min; starring: Joey King; directed by: Lydia Dean Pilcher & Ginny Mohler
“A worthy entry in the category of workers’ rights movies, ’Radium Girls,’ like ‘Silkwood,’ is based on actual events…reveals a little-known part of history with a loudly beating feminist heart and a narrative grounded in reality.”
