Easily the best film interpretation of the development of the atom bomb. The casting and acting are excellent. David Strathairn as Robert Oppenheimer, Brian Dennehy as General Leslie Groves and Michael Tucker as Leo Szilard have never done better work. There are other versions of this story, and the one featuring Sam Waterston especially comes to mind, but none equal this telling. In short--outstanding!
