A Sneak Peek at the Upcoming Film ‘Tesla’
While Hollywood is still getting booted back up from pauses due to COVID-19, we’re starting to see some new trailers release – and one of those is IFC Films’ Tesla. The film, which is directed by Michael Almereyda, debuted earlier this year to raving reviews at the Sundance Film Festival and is slated to hit theaters and VOD on August 21st!
Tesla tells the story of brilliant, visionary Nikola Tesla, played by Ethan Hawke, and his uphill battle to bring his revolutionary electrical system to fruition. The film tracks Tesla’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 modern voice to this scientific period drama which, like its subject, defies convention.
Take a look at the trailer below.
