“When they tried to buy him, he refused. When they tried to bully him, he resisted. When they tried to break him, he became an American legend. The true story of Preston Tucker.”
Jeff Bridges gives a dazzling performance as Preston Tucker, a dynamic automotive visionary determined to create the car of the future. Against all odds, Tucker builds the Tucker Torpedo, and the better, safer and more beautiful his car becomes the more opposition stiffens until his factory is shut down by Detroit’s Big Three auto manufacturers. Tucker must fight for his American Dream in this passion-project film from Academy Award®-winning director Francis Ford Coppola (1974, Best Director, The Godfather Part II).
Written by two-time Academy Award® nominee Arnold Schulman (1963, Best Writing, Love with the Proper Stranger; 1969, Best Writing, Goodbye, Columbus) and Academy Award winner David Seidler (2010, Best Writing, The King’s Speech), and with cinematography by Academy Award winner Vittorio Storaro (1979, Best Cinematographer, Apocalypse Now).
