THE AERONAUTS Galas

THE AERONAUTS

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we invite you to witness death-defying feats with our two charismatic heroes and one giant balloon! THE AERONAUTS is an exhilarating fictionalized account of pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne), a scientist with his head in the clouds, and who is struggling for respect. His theories about weather predication could change everything, but proving them requires flying higher than anyone has ever dared. Daredevil Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones), a reimagining of the balloon’s actual pilot, is just what he’s missing for a successful mission. Can they do it? Will they survive the approaching storm clouds? Will the scientists on the ground have to eat their words of ridicule? Join them, look to the sky and watch out for falling sandbags.

Born in London, Tom Harper is a British film and television director who began his career making short films. His 2006 short CUBS was nominated for a BAFTA in the Best Short Film category. He is now best known for the British series’ WAR & PEACE and PEAKY BLINDERS.
