Synopsis

This riveting 1980s sci-fi thriller sees young misfit hacker David Lightman get into a deep fix after unwittingly accessing a US military supercomputer called WOPR, which has been programmed to predict the possible outcomes of a nuclear war. Playing as the Soviet Union, he gets WOPR to run a nuclear war simulation under the belief it’s nothing more than a computer game, causing a national nuclear missile scare and almost kicking off World War III. It’s hard not to get caught up in the tech mayhem, as David grapples with the question: Is it a game, or is it real?

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
