Michael Shannon and Alfonso Gomez-Rejon on The Current War: Reel Pieces with Annette Insdorf

Oct 20, 2019

Moderator Annette Insdorf interviews Michael Shannon and Alfonso Gomez-Rejon about The Current War, what she calls "a beautifully made historical epic that conveys the excitement of scientific ideas tested and realized in life-changing ways." Businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), inventor Thomas Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch), and immigrant genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult) compete to bring electricity to the world, sparking one of the first great American corporate feuds. Co-starring Tom Holland as Edison's secretary, The Current War: The Director's Cut is a new and enhanced version of a film that had brief festival exposure in 2017; it was released theatrically on October 25, 2019.
