The sky is no limit for Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne’s aerial explorers in this heart-racing and breathless adventure story about flight and scientific discovery.
Be ready to be cast off into the high skies of Victorian England as The Theory of Everything’s Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne are reunited in this heart-racing adventure story. Scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne), fixated on flying higher than anyone has done before to further his atmospheric research, convinces aeronautically impassioned Amelia Wren (Jones) to join him on the hot air balloon ride of a lifetime. An exhilarating and spectacular film that has to be seen on the big screen.
(2019 UK / USA 101 mins)
It’s hard to work out where facts end and the fantasy begins in this charming ballooning adventure set against a sweet version of Victorian London. The historic expedition the movie is all about – an attempt to break the world flight altitude record – did happen, just not quite like this. But you’ll want to suspend all disbelief, hold tight to the wicker basket and go along for the ride … the visuals, derring-do and on-screen chemistry is all fizz. Catch this unusual period piece on the big screen and you’ll find such liberty-taking easy to forgive. Ellie Walker-Arnott, Time Out
