Sparks fly in Michael Almereyda’s gripping biopic Tesla

Buzz, Film
Sparks fly in Michael Almereyda’s (Hamlet) gripping biopic Tesla, the electrifying story of one of the twentieth century’s most visionary minds.  

Brilliant and brooding, inventor Nikola Tesla (Ethan Hawke, Predestination, Gattaca) must fight an uphill battle to bring his revolutionary electrical system to fruition. Increasingly displeased by the greed of fellow inventor Thomas Edison (Kyle MacLachlan, Twin Peaks), Tesla forges his own virtuous but arduous path toward creating the innovative alternate-current motor.

As Tesla slowly becomes trapped in his own overactive mind, his associate Anne Morgan (Eve Hewson, Bridge of Spies) analyses and presents his story as it unfolds, offering a distinctly modern voice in this scintillating biopic of one of the greatest scientists of the modern age.

Starring Ethan Hawke, Kyle MacLachlan, Eve Hewson, Jim Gaffigan (Troop Zero) and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Punisher). Written and directed by Michael Almereyda. Tesla received its world premiere at Sundance in 2020.
