Hop aboard for Amazon’s critically acclaimed The Aeronauts, a biographical adventure that reunites The Theory of Everything‘s Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne.

Set in 1862, the movie follows wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Jones) and headstrong scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne), as they mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. This is a journey to the very edge of existence, where the air is thin and the chances of survival are slim. As their perilous ascent reveals their true selves, this unlikely pair discover things about each other – and themselves – that helps each of them find their place in the world they have left behind.

With gorgeous cinematography, impressive special effects, and dynamic chemistry between the two leads, The Aeronauts is certain to lift audiences.


“With ace cinematography and sound design, and a truly engaging performance from its female lead, this one surprised me.” — Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

“Something worth watching on the biggest possible screen.” — Tomris Laffly, Variety

“The Aeronauts achieves impressive elevation as a bracing and sympathetic account of two early and very different aviators who together reached literal new heights in a perilous field of endeavor.” — Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
