Nominated for 13 Oscars, including Best Picture. Written and directed by Christopher Nolan (Inception, Interstellar, Dunkirk), this is an epic thriller that thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it. Oppenheimer served as the director of the Los Alamos Laboratory during World War II, and is often credited as the “father of the atomic bomb” for his role in the Manhattan Project, the research and development undertaking that created the world’s first-ever nuclear weapons. This is a story rife with controversies and drama, which takes on nobody less than the man who ushered in a new level of war, whether he wanted it or not.
