Starring Eve Hewson, Ethan Hawke, Hannah Gross, Kyle MacLachlan and Josh Hamilton.
Brilliant, visionary Nikola Tesla
(Ethan Hawke) American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist fights an uphill battle to bring his revolutionary electrical system to fruition, then faces thornier challenges with his new system for worldwide wireless energy.
The film tracks inventor’s uneasy interactions with his fellow inventor Thomas Edison (Kyle MacLachlan) and his patron George Westinghouse (Jim Gaffigan). Another thread traces Tesla’s sidewinding courtship of financial titan J.P. Morgan (Donnie Keshawarz), whose daughter Anne (Eve Hewson) takes a more than casual interest in the inventor.
Anne analyzes and presents the story as it unfolds, offering a distinctly modern voice to this scientific period drama which, like its subject, defies convention.
