The summer’s most anticipated film (for people over 15) can now be experienced in the most-loved cinema in Hartford and beyond! Film fanatic Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Dunkirk, Inception) has made what may be his magnum opus: shot on 70mm film, using little CGI for its incredible visual effects, and with an ensemble cast of exceptional actors. Leading the cast is Cillian Murphy (Inception, The Wind That Shakes the Barley, BBC’s Peaky Blinders) as the brilliant physicist known as the “father of the nuclear bomb.” Once recruited by the government, Oppenheimer’s genius and determination to defeat Germany and Japan is shot through with ambivalence, knowing that the fearsome weapon could result in limitless destruction. “I think it is a stunning artistic achievement, and I have hopes it will stimulate a global conversation on how to live in the atomic age, what it means to be a patriot, and what is the role for a scientist to speak out.” – Kai Bird, co-author of American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer
