U.S./U.K., 2019, 100 min, 70mm, Dir. Tom Harper, Rated PG-13, Amazon Studios
“The Aeronauts achieves impressive elevation as a bracing and sympathetic account of two early and very different aviators who together reached literal new heights in a perilous field of endeavor.” – Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
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. But they face physical and emotional challenges in the thin air, as the ascent becomes a struggle for survival. Redmayne and Jones earned an Oscar and an Oscar nomination respectively for The Theory of Everything in 2014. And director Tom Harper (Wild Rose) transmutes a real-life story into the wonder-filled adventure of the season.
