The Aeronauts (TBC) (PG)

Director Tom Harper. Action/Adventure/Biography


In 1862, pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Redmayne) teams up with daredevil balloon pilot Amelia Wren (Jones) to fly higher than anyone in history. While their voyage to the very edge of existence helps the unlikely pair find their place in the world, they face physical and emotional challenges in the thin air, as the ascent becomes a fight for survival. There's something amiably Quixotic about this recklessly dangerous flight to advance human knowledge of the weather, something innocent. So hold tight to the wicker basket and go along for a ride that is beautifully rendered, thrilling and engaging. “It's beautifully shot, oddly gripping, and as they've proved before, Jones and Redmayne make a compelling double act.” Irish Independent

Starring Felicity Jones, Eddie Redmayne, Himesh Patel, Tom Courtenay
