Synopsis by Olivia Cantor

Written and directed by Michael Almereyda, this film is a dramedy with a postmodern take on the biographical film as it presents the life of Nikola Tesla (Ethan Hawke) by meshing period film elements with modern-day cultural references. The story revolves around the “war of the currents” that took place in the 19th century between the aloof inventor Tesla and the brash businessman-inventor Thomas Edison (Kyle MacLachlan). Jim Gaffigan plays George Westinghouse and Rebecca Dayan appears as Sarah Bernhardt while Eve Hewson portrays J.P. Morgan’s daughter Anne.
