film synopsis

In the autumn of 1943, Stanisław Ulam (Philippe Tlokinski), a brilliant Polish mathematician, is invited to join a team of elite scientists in New Mexico for a top secret assignment: The Manhattan Project. In Thor Klein’s handsome biopic, titled after Ulam’s 1976 autobiography, we see Ulam as a conflicted genius. On the one hand, his research proves to have practical purposes: smaller nuclear explosions could, he posits, aid in outer space travel. On the other, his contributions to the development of the atomic bomb has Ulam and his wife (Esther Garrel) grappling with the ethical fallout of thermonuclear warfare. With a deftly calculated script that recalls Greek theater, and gorgeous, period-perfect production design, Adventures of a Mathematician gives audiences a unique look at the private life of an incredible mind and a truly explosive time in world history.
