ODEON says...
Wealthy widow and pilot Amelia Wren, and headstrong scientist James Glaisher, are ‘The Aeronauts’. Together, they mount a dangerous balloon expedition to try and fly higher than anyone in history.

He wants to discover how to predict the weather, and she’s the only one who can fly high enough to do it. But where they’re going, the air is thin and chances of survival are slim, and this perilous ascent will reveal their true selves to each other and themselves.

Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones star in ‘The Aeronauts’, a thrilling adventure to the edge of the atmosphere from the director of ‘Wild Rose’.

Forget history. A fine film. I will never get into a hot air balloon! Great performance by Felicity J, everyone else could have been anyone else. Kept me entranced.

I am aware that this is not historically accurate /history has been airbrushed,, but nevertheless a very enjoyable and exciting film, which I think is one of the better 2019 movies.

Who needs guns and cars when you have a natural high like this? Not for those who suffer from vertigo. Sad it is not historically accurate when it could have been. A slow start but grows. Pioneers with purpose - pushing the frontiers of science
