Synopsis – What to Expect from “Fat Man and Little Boy”
Fat Man and Little Boy is a 1989 drama film directed by Roland Joffé and starring Paul Newman, Dwight Schultz, Bonnie Bedelia, John Cusack, Laura Dern, and John C. McGinley.
The film follows two very different scientists: Dr. Leslie Groves (Newman), the leader of the Manhattan Project, and Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer (Schultz), the project’s head scientist. As the United States races to build the world’s first atomic bomb during WWII, Groves and Oppenheimer must overcome their differences to create a weapon that could change the course of history.
The film begins with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, an event that galvanizes the United States into action and leads to the creation of the Manhattan Project. Groves is appointed to lead the project and is tasked with finding the best scientific minds to help him. He selects Oppenheimer, a brilliant but eccentric physicist, to be the project’s head scientist.
Despite their differences in personality and approach to science, Groves and Oppenheimer must work together to create the atomic bomb. As the project progresses, the two men become increasingly close, and they must confront the moral implications of their work.
As the project nears completion, the two men must make the difficult decision to use the bomb against Japan. In the end, the bomb is successfully tested and the two men must face the consequences of their actions.
