Storyline of Oppenheimer

The film Oppenheimer is based on Martin Sherwin and Kai Bird’s book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel will be made into a film that will be “an IMAX-shot epic thriller that thrusts the audience into the pulse-pounding conundrum of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to rescue it,” according to the press release.


One of the things that makes him famous is that he led the Manhattan Project during World War II, which made the atomic bomb for the United States of America. Later, he was the head of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, which tried to stop the Soviet Union from building nuclear weapons.

In 1954, Oppenheimer was called a communist because he had a lot of ties to different groups. During his time in exile, he was not allowed to work for the federal government. He was still a teacher and a revolutionary theoretical physicist, though.

During the years 1946 to 1967, he was nominated for three Nobel Prizes in physics. He never won one before he died in 1967.
