THE CURRENT WAR: DIRECTOR’S CUT
2019, 101 Studios, 107 min, USA, Dir: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in this epic story of the cutthroat competition that literally lit up the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch is Thomas Edison, the celebrity inventor on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new DC technology. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with AC current. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history, establishing for future titans of industry the need to break all the rules. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, THE CURRENT WAR also stars Katherine Waterston, Tom Holland, Matthew Macfadyen and Tuppence Middleton.
