Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse -- the greatest inventors of the industrial age -- engage in a battle of technology and ideas that will determine whose electrical system will power the new century. Backed by J.P. Morgan, Edison dazzles the world by lighting Manhattan. But Westinghouse, aided by Nikola Tesla, sees fatal flaws in Edison's direct current design. Westinghouse and Tesla bet everything on risky and dangerous alternating current. 

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Katherine Waterston, Nicholas Hoult, Tuppence Middleton, Matthew Macfadyen and Tom Holland. 

★★★★ - Deadline Hollywood Daily
"Benedict Cumberbatch lights up the screen as Thomas Edison in a smart and entertaining historical drama"

★★★½ (3.5/4) - Seattle Times
"The fervor and intelligence Cumberbatch and Shannon bring to their roles make for a gripping experience."
