SCREENING & LIVE EVENT
Queens Drive-In, on the grounds of the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, is located at 47-01 111th Street, Corona, New York 11368
With Michael Almereyda in person.
Dir. Michael Almereyda. US, 2020, 102 mins. With Ethan Hawke, Kyle MacLachlan, Jim Gaffigan, Donnie Keshawarz, Eve Hewson. 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. Courtesy of IFC Films.
