Could you help me out for a friend here? He asked me to name a few famous films (thus easily to find in the local video store ... in Belgium; mind you. So don't come up with anything local that cannot be found here, please! :D) that had something to do with nuclear power plants and the possible life-threatening danger that could come along with this. Any other names, please?

By the way: I already mentioned that he should watch a few Simpsons-episodes in which Mr. Burns' nuclear power plant-factory is playing a main role. Hehehe ... that should be very funny for his paper.

Thanks a lot, folks!

Bye for now

The first thing that came to my mind was The Andromeda Strain.
It's not a nuclear danger story as such, but it's got a lot to do with
lockdown and containment.
Then I did a bit of research and found Silkwood
with Meryl Streep (I don't really like her but this is a great movie).
It's the true story of a whistleblower who brings attention to the dangers
of a nuclear power plant.
If I think of any more I'll post 'em.
