Overview
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.

*Best Actor, The Color Of Money, 1986.
