The Current War

The celebrity inventor Thomas Edison is on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new DC technology. On the eve of his triumph his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse, who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla, have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with AC current. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history, establishing for future Titans of Industry the need to break all the rules.
