The Current War

The Current War

Power changes everything in this compelling recreation of Thomas Edison's battle with George Westinghouse to be the dominant force in electricity.

Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Westinghouse (Michael Shannon) use the power of the press, flashy gimmicks and rope in Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult) in an all out war that gets to the heart of American commerce and competition.

Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me, Earl and the Dying Girl) charges the film with visual spark throughout, and brings electric performance from the superb cast (including Katherine Waterston, Tom Holland and Tuppence Middleton).
