The Aeronauts
Australian Premiere

Inspired by incredible true events, The Aeronauts combines the powers of Amazon Studios and Imax, with the leading talents of Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne and Academy Award nominee Felicity Jones.

In 1862 England, a wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Jones, On The Basis of Sex, 2018) meets an ambitious scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne, The Theory of Everything, 2014, The Danish Girl, 2015). This chance encounter sets the wheels of change set in motion, as the two decide to mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. The journey will take them to the very edge of existence, where the air is thin, and the chances of survival are slim. In the perilous ascent, the unlikely pair are confronted with their true selves, while discovering things about each other that will help them find their place in the world they have left behind.

Cinematically breathtaking, heart-pounding intense sequences are woven with the beauty, scale and emotion of these two Theory of Everything stars on their epic journey. This unforgettable theatrical experience will leave audiences high above the clouds.
