The Aeronauts, 6.8/10, attempts to reach to new cinematic heights. Based loosely on true events, theatrical pilot Amelia Wren and tight lipped scientist James Glaisher embark on an epic journey into the clouds to discover scientific breakthroughs.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. From the off I was hooked by the drama that comes from the conflicting personalities of our two leads. Their onscreen chemistry is what drives the story forward. Jones may be the fictionalised character but she certainly steals the show. The narrative becomes increasingly unpredictable and the runtime of the film is cleverly parallel to real time it took to complete the trip, with cutaways to give you background on the journey and it’s characters.
Picture is very hit or miss, especially at the start. However as the film progresses and the sense of vertigo begins to set in it felt very much like the first time I watched “The Walk”. Well, we now know the answer to the question “How entertaining will 1 hour and 40 minutes of Felicty Jones and Eddie Redmayne be?” and that is very.
