Oppenheimer is an epic biographical thriller film written and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film stars Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, the American theoretical physicist credited with being the “father of the atomic bomb” for his role in the Manhattan Project.
The movie follows the life and biggest achievements of J. Robert Oppenheimer, putting the main focus on the creation of the atomic bomb and his pivotal role in spearheading the Manhattan Project. The story predominantly focuses on his studies, his direction of the Manhattan Project during World War II, and his eventual fall from grace due to his 1954 security hearing.
The film’s most spectacular attraction turns out to be something else: the human face. This biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer is a film about faces. It contrasts the external coolness and internal turmoil of Oppenheimer, a brilliant mathematician and low-key showman and leader whose impulsive nature and insatiable sexual appetites made his private life a disaster, and whose greatest contribution to civilization was a weapon that could destroy it.
The programme starts 30 minutes after doors open and the main feature 60 minutes after doors open.
