A Special Festival Screening on 35mm
Set against the backdrop of World War II, the film uncovers the complex motivations and dilemmas faced by Oppenheimer and his team as they race against time to develop a weapon capable of ending the war.
As they unlock the destructive power of the atom, they must confront the ethical implications of their actions and grapple with the devastating aftermath. The incredible cast includes Murphy, Florence Pugh, Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Gustaf Skarsgård, Gary Oldman, Josh Hartnett, Kenneth Branagh, Rami Malek and Casey Affleck.
NB. Another aspect of this subject concerns Ted Hall, a young physicist working for the Manhattan Project which is explored in the outstanding documentary ‘A Compassionate Spy’.
A rare opportunity to see this film in the 35mm format as preferred by director Christopher Nolan.
