Based on the autobiography of the same title, this riveting biodrama recounts the eventful life of mathematician Stam Ulam. A Polish Jewish refugee, Ulam was a key player at Los Alamos, where he helped to develop the hydrogen bomb and create the first computer. Later, he taught at CU Boulder. An intriguing behind-the-scenes look at Los Alamos, where a group of mostly European Jews were locked in a scientific battle with Nazis and later Communists, this warmhearted, well-acted personal drama also serves as a prelude to “Oppenheimer,” Christopher Nolan’s biopic focused on Ulam’s famous boss due out in 2023.
