Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse – one a brilliant inventor, the other a hugely successful businessman – fought each other in ‘The Current War’, over whose electricity system would power the world.
Whoever won this battle had the potential to control everything: lighting, communication and transportation could all be powered by this revolutionary new technology. And in the bitter, cutthroat competition that ensued, only one could ever come out on top.
A riveting drama about a defining moment in the history of technology, ‘The Current War’ stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Edison, Michael Shannon as Westinghouse and Nicholas Hoult as Nikola Tesla.
