The Aeronauts

February 14

In this dazzling Victorian Age "Gravity", a daredevil balloon pilot (Felicity Jones) and a scientist (Eddie Redmayne) go to record-breaking heights to decode the mystery of weather.

#MovieMagic

In 1862 London, a balloon crew prepares to make history. The passengers comprise one Mr. James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne), a scientist convinced that studying the skies up-close can help predict the weather and lead to the discoveries of his lifetime, and Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones), a consummate showman and free-spirited pilot still reeling from the disastrous death of her husband on their last flight. Against the backdrop of crowds, speeches and confetti, this mismatched duo rockets upwards. 

But as the air slowly thins and the fair weather turns stormy, a series of tense, life-threatening obstacles await—ones that will test everything James and Amelia have, if they are able to survive. Jones and Redmayne crackle in their parts, giving a new spin to the period piece chemistry they mastered in The Theory of Everything. Subverting expectations, The Aeronauts re-invents the disaster flick within small confines, but with grand imagination. D: Tom Harper, UK, 2019,
