Oppenheimer is a 2023 epic biographical thriller film written and directed by Christopher Nolan. Based on the 2005 biography American Prometheus by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin, the film chronicles the career of American theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb. The story predominantly focuses on Oppenheimer’s early studies, his direction of the Manhattan Project during World War II and his eventual fall from grace due to his 1954 security hearing.
