Eddie Redmayne stars as nineteenth-century real-life meteorologist James Glaisher in this Victorian ballooning adventure. The pioneering Glaisher wants to prove to his stuffy, mutton-chopped Royal Society colleagues that predicting weather is a science. Teaming up with a dare-devil balloon pilot (Jones), Glaisher sets out on a reckless voyage. Visually wondrous, with charismatic performances from the stars of The Theory Of Everything, The Aeronauts takes to the skies and soars. Fans of the classic, old-style British adventure epic are in for a treat.
