In the remote desert of New Mexico, The Manhattan Project is materializing – the World War II effort to build the atomic bomb. Oscar-winner Paul Newman (Hud, Nobody's Fool) stars as General Leslie Groves, the military man in charge of a massive project that will produce two weapons: Fat Man and Little Boy. Dwight Schultz (The Temp, Star Trek: First Contact) is J. Robert Oppenheimer, the brilliant scientist attempting to bring the startling mission to fruition. And Bonnie Bedelia, John Cusack, Laura Dern and Natasha Richardson co-star in this stunning… profoundly moving film (Michael Medved, Sneak Previews) that re-creates one of history's most compelling chapters… one that resulted in the mushroom-shaped specter that changed the world forever.
