Rating:
PG-13
Fat Man and Little Boy is a historic film directed by Roland Joffe that centers on the frequently tumultuous relationship between General Leslie Groves (Paul Newman) and Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer (Dwight Shultz), the project director and scientific director of the Manhattan Project, the secret endeavor that eventually developed the first nuclear weapons. In the early 1940s as World War II rages overseas, General Groves clashes with the distinctly different scientist Oppenheimer as they continue to experiment with a weapon with the potential to destroy millions of lives. As the project is thrown into slightly delay when investigations begin to pick apart the scientists' personal lives, technical problems also reveal just how deadly little radiation poisoning can be. Based on the real life scientists involved with that game-changing project, Fat Man and Little Boy, named after the two distinct bombs, is a look at the men behind the project.
