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.The 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.
There is something disarming about the joint presence of the ever bashful Eddie Redmayne and the fiercely charismatic Felicity Jones that instantly feels wholesome. So when the duo embarks on a hot air balloon adventure in “Wild Rose” director Tom Harper’s “The Aeronauts” you can not help but tag along and root for “The Theory of Everything” co-stars.The Aeronauts release on 8 November 2019.
Playing a pair of complementary trailblazers that start off on the wrong foot, the duo hand-in-hand elevates Harper 1862 set based on a true story film, from a flimsy action adventure to something worth watching on the biggest possible screen, even if it operates on a handful of clichés with little character-based substance to speak of.
In a script written by Jack Thorne who shares story credit with Harper wren is a stand in for Henry Coxwell Glaisher’s actual co aeronaut who along with the scientist rose in the air over London and flew up to 37,000 ft. in a mission designed to observe and research the weather. While the gender swap still a go to Hollywood trend is strange in its dismissal of historical accuracy, it works within the context of “The Aeronauts” that sees both parties of the two hander as physical and intellectual equals. And to the film’s credit the chemistry between the leads does not resolve to a predictable case of romance.
