Brilliant, visionary Nikola Tesla (Ethan Hawke) fights an uphill battle to bring his revolutionary electrical system to fruition, then faces thornier challenges with his new system for worldwide wireless energy. 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 distinctly modern voice to this scientific period drama which, like its subject, defies convention.

"For all its arch devices and anachronisms, including a wonderfully straight-faced, go-for-broke cover of a 1980s pop hit, the effect of Almereyda's TESLA is hypnotic."
Justin Chang - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"Jolts of creative whimsy electrify a delightfully oddball biopic... Amid the anachronisms and fourth-wall breaking, there's a great performance by Ethan Hawke as the futuristic visionary."
Richard Roeper - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"You might not learn everything there is to know about TESLA - that's what the internet is for - but you will nonetheless feel illuminated by his presence."
A.O. Scott - NEW YORK TIMES
