“You are the only person who can fly us higher than anyone has ever been.” Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones reunite to tell the story of balloon pilot Amelia Wren and scientist James Glaisher in THE AERONAUTS, opening in Irish cinemas on November 6.


Directed by Tom Harper (‘Wild Rose’) and written by Jack Thorne (‘Wonder’), THE AERONAUTS is set in 1862 and 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.

THE AERONAUTS – only in cinemas & IMAX on November 6.
