Cillian Murphy is J. Robert Oppenheimer in OPPENHEIMER, written, produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan. /

J. Robert Oppenheimer is in a race against time to develop the Atomic bomb before Nazis do during World War II. And then he – and the whole world – has to deal with the repercussions.

What age is it appropriate for? You can read more in our Oppenheimer parents guide, but the movie earns its R rating for sexuality, nudity, and language. The history lesson is good, but the nudity may make for an uncomfortable family watch.
