THE AERONAUTS
2019, Amazon Studios, 101 min, UK/USA, Dir: Tom Harper

In 1862, daredevil balloon pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) teams up with pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) to advance human knowledge of the weather and fly higher than anyone in history. While breaking records and furthering scientific discovery, their voyage to the very edge of existence helps the unlikely pair find their place in the world they have left far below them. But they face physical and emotional challenges in the thin air, as the ascent becomes a fight for survival. “Reuniting after Oscar-winning Stephen Hawking drama THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING, Redmayne and Jones give charm and charisma to THE AERONAUTS … it soars with an old-school spirit of adventure and possibility, topped off with grandstanding filmmaking from Tom Harper.” - Ian Freer, Empire.
