Biography Drama History


The story of theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role as director of the Manhattan Project, a U.S. government effort to develop the first atomic bomb.

"Oppenheimer" brilliantly captures the trepidation, excitement and utter chaos of one of the most significant scientific discoveries of all time. This chronicle of the enigmatic scientist is gripping from the start, showing us a man battling with the morality of World War II by unspeakable means. Such a complex character demands a powerful performance, and we're not left disappointed. While the final act deviates from the tension that comes before it, the courtroom drama is necessary to wholly complete this fascinating story. Destroyer of worlds.
