Heavily damaged DVD? Half way through?

Actor David Strathairn gives the performance of a lifetime as J. Robert Oppenheimer. A man so complex and with the world seemly on his shoulders, Strathairn gives Oppenheimer strength and frailties. This is a true story of the scientist heading the Manhattan Project and the men he chose to work with him. This is a PBS Production and the entire cast is first rate. We owe this man so much. The Trials of J. Robert Oppenheimer brings it all to life.
