The film is based on a biography

The three-hour long film Pulitzer Award winner biography ‘American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Based on Robert Oppenheimer’. The story plays between the past and the present, addressing the major events surrounding the nuclear test and its aftermath. A man who was so proud of his invention can no longer look up. The making and testing of the atomic bomb in the film is only a part of the film but at large the film is a study of the mind set of the bomb makers. Oppenheimer’s ambition and his love of physics filled him with a sense of doom and moral qualms. Christopher Nolan very cleverly pits Oppenheimer’s heart against his mind.
