While helming the Manhattan Project, flinty Gen. Leslie R. Groves clashes with head scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer.
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.
In real life, Robert Oppenheimer was the scientific head of the Manhattan Project, the secret wartime project in New Mexico where the first atomic bombs were designed and built. General Leslie Groves was in overall command of it. This film reenacts the project with an emphasis on their relationship
