The Aeronauts (PG)
1hr 40m Action Adventure Biography
Pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) and scientist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) find themselves in an epic fight for survival while attempting to make discoveries in a gas balloon.
Director: Tom Harper
Stars: Felicity Jones, Eddie Redmayne, Himesh Patel
This movie has to score points with originality, it takes a lone sailor stranded at sea scenario and replaces it with an odd but likable couple stranded above the Earth in a balloon.
Unlike Branson these two really took it to the limits of human endurance and no doubting the poetic licence in this at it is based on a true story. So real historians please look away.
But if you accept it for what it is it is a good watch and though a little long winded at times the cinematography and climax to the movie can literally take your breath away, especially if watched on a big screen.
Different to what's out there so very watchable.
