OPPENHEIMER explores the controversial and legendary life of theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, including his work on the top-secret scheme to create an atomic bomb, the Manhattan Project, and his subsequent moral qualms about its use and proliferation.
One of the most anticipated movies of 2023 from one of cinema’s most capable filmmakers, Christopher Nolan's OPPENHEIMER features a stacked cast. Frequent Nolan collaborator Cillian Murphy portrays the scientist himself, and is joined by the likes of Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, and Matt Damon.
"It's at once a speeding roller-coaster and a skin-tingling spiritual portrait; an often classically minded period piece that only Nolan could have made, and only now, after a quarter-century’s run-up." – Daily Telegraph (UK)
"[Nolan] has brought to life not just J. Robert Oppenheimer, but the still-crucial arguments he both started and tried to end. OPPENHEIMER boldly posits that those arguments are still worth having, in a film of magnitude, profundity and dazzling artistry." – Washington Post
"A divided epic of awe and horror, fission and fusion. It's simultaneously a unified portrait of a conflicted man and a singular achievement for Hollywood's reigning blockbuster auteur." – The Daily Beast
"Christopher Nolan's OPPENHEIMER is a kinetic thing of dark, imposing beauty that quakes with the disquieting tremors of a forever rupture in the course of human history." – Associated Press
