Oppenheimer (15) - 180 mins History/Drama

Based on the 2005 biography American Prometheus Christopher Nolan's eagerly awaited feature is the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, "the father of the atomic bomb", an enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it. "Arguably Nolan's most impressive work yet in the way it combines his acknowledged visual mastery with one of the deepest character dives in recent American cinema." Los Angeles Times "It's a character study on the grandest scale, with a sublime central performance by Cillian Murphy. An epic historical drama but with a distinctly Nolan sensibility: the tension, structure, sense of scale, startling sound design, remarkable visuals. Wow." Matt Maytum, deputy editor of Total Film
