The Aeronauts (PG) – 2019, UK, 101 mins
Director: Tom Harper
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.
Who would dare venture to the outer reaches of the atmosphere with just a balloon and some gas above them and a wicker basket beneath? Amelia Wren (Jones) and James Glaisher (Redmayne) are about to embark on mankind’s highest-ever balloon voyage in the interest of studying the weather. But they have to stop bickering first. Directed by Tom Harper and written by Jack Thorne they absolutely nail the audacity and romance of the Victorian race into the air, with special effects that make you feel you are inside the balloon. Based on a composite of adventurers and the stories of their exploits, The Aeronauts seeks to understand people who push themselves beyond the limits to make new discoveries and redefine the boundaries of what is possible. If you are squeamish about heights, prepare to watch this from behind your fingers!
Doors open for fine wines and all manner of drinks at 7pm. Film at 8pm
