Movie Review – The Current War (2017)

The Current War, 2017.

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.

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

Synopsis:

As the possibility of electric lighting in the home becomes a real thing, warring entrepreneurs Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse battle to become the leading provider of electricity in the USA and, by extension, the world.

Anyone would be forgiven for assuming that The Current War was released ages ago. It was shot way back in 2016 and premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in the autumn of 2017, with a cinema release set to take place soon after. However, the film was owned by The Weinstein Company and therefore became caught in the maelstrom of sexual assault allegations around head honcho Harvey Weinstein. Two years later, the film has finally made it to the big screen, and it’s an engaging tale that brings a real spark to the battle over electricity.

The Current War Review

The Current War had a troubled upbringing. Post production, the film segued into a lukewarm reception at the Toronto Film Festival back in 2017. Upon its release, director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon said: “I knew in my heart, and every fibre of my body was saying, it’s not ready.” Despite the director having an extra eighteen months to shape his project, the film then suffered hugely from its connection to The Weinstein Company. Indeed, that’s why this awards-friendly vehicle has struggled for the hum of publicity.

Having waited on the shelf for so long, it’s perhaps unsurprising that the film recounts the birth of electricity with an aggressive alacrity. Flitting between the geniuses of Thomas Edison (Cumberbatch), George Westinghouse (Shannon) and Nikola Tesla (Hoult), its perennial restlessness undoes the good ideas and interesting performances which occasionally flicker on screen.

The film frames itself as a fight for the future, with

Benedict Cumberbatch and Nicholas Hoult Make Sparks Fly in New ‘The Current War’ Trailer (Video)
The fight for the future is here in the latest trailer for “The Current War.” But instead of Benedict Cumberbatch playing Doctor Strange, he’s playing another icon, Thomas Edison, who faces off against his greatest rivals in George Westinghouse and Nikola Tesla.

This latest look at “The Current War” is the first since the film was scooped up by 101 Studios for release. The biopic starring Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult and Tom Holland played at Toronto in 2017 and was in limbo after The Weinstein Co. let it go as part of the company’s bankruptcy proceedings.

But the new look at the film plays up the competition between Edison, Tesla and Westinghouse more so than the genius behind the men, and how the fight over electricity shaped our society.
