      79% 34 Reviews Tomatometer An investigative thriller set in the world of nuclear power and politics, La Syndicaliste follows the true story of Maureen Kearney (Isabelle Huppert), the influential head union representative of a French multinational nuclear powerhouse. A deft navigator of elite political and financial circles, Maureen becomes a whistleblower when she discovers international backroom dealings, exposing secrets that shook the French nuclear sector.

      Manohla Dargis New York Times Sometimes the best reason to watch a movie is because Isabelle Huppert is in it. Nov 30, 2023 Full Review Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.com “La Syndicaliste” might have benefitted from a bit more expansiveness. Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 29, 2023 Full Review Guy Lodge Variety Salomé’s film pivots from itchy whistleblower thriller to irate courtroom drama, with institutional misogyny as its binding thread. Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Alan Zilberman Spectrum Culture There might be a great film in this material, but Kearney and her colleagues are probably too bound to non-disclosure agreements to tell it. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 6, 2023 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall Slickly assembled with a yet another riveting performance by Isabelle Huppert at its centre, this French dramatic thriller is too talky and detailed to properly pull the audience in. Rated: 3/5 Dec 5, 2023 Full Review Neely Swanson Easy Reader (California) This is the well-told story of a whistleblower who was unable to combat the steamroller coming for her.
