Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne have joined forces again, after their electrifying on-screen chemistry in the biopic, The Theory of Everything. While Redmayne previously took centre stage as Professor Stephen Hawking, The Aeronauts allows Felicity to shine at her absolute best as daredevil Pilot Amelia Wren.
They are joined by Himesh Patel (Yesterday) and Tom Courtenay (Doctor Zhivago, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner) in this breathless adventure story.
Inspired by real events, the film is based on an amalgam of the flights detailed in Richard Holmes' 2013 book Falling Upwards: How We Took to the Air.
In 1862 headstrong scientist James Glaisher and wealthy young widow Amelia Wren mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. As their perilous ascent reduces their chances of survival, the unlikely duo soon discover things about themselves — and each other — that help both of them find their place in the world.
Directed by Tom Harper, best known for his work on Wild Rose, Peaky Blinders and the TV mini-series War & Peace.
