Nominated for 13 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor

The story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb.

Directed by Academy Award® nominee Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk, Interstellar) and starring Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders, the Dark Knight trilogy).

"Oppenheimer is a great achievement in formal and conceptual terms, and fully absorbing, but Nolan’s filmmaking is, crucially, in service to the history that it relates."
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
"So stunning and antithetical to anything Hollywood is doing at the moment – the equally audacious Barbie aside – that it feels like a completely different art form. And, frankly, hallelujah for that."
Phil de Semlyen, Time Out
