Film title

The Aeronauts


Set in 1862, ambitious scientist James Glaisher is joined by pilot Amelia Wren on a balloon expedition in the hope of flying higher than anyone in history and to return with several discoveries. This extremely dangerous journey, where the air is thin and they only have each other to rely on, forces them to reveal and define themselves outside of society. This thrilling true story explores some of the history of air travel in the UK, while also being entertaining and including strong performances from the two lead actors.
