Storyline

In 1862, pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) teams up with daredevil balloon pilot Amelia Rennes (Felicity Jones) to advance human knowledge of the weather and fly higher than anyone in history. While their voyage to the very edge of existence helps the unlikely pair find their place in the world, they face physical and emotional challenges in the thin air, as the ascent becomes a fight for survival.

Trivia

Henry Coxwell was 43 at the time of the actual record breaking flight in 1862 and James Glaisher was 53. The pair were 7 and 16 years older, respectively, than Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne who portray them in the film.

A report in The Daily Telegraph quotes Keith Moore, Head of Library at the Royal Society (Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge), as saying, "It's a great shame that Henry isn't portrayed because he performed very well and saved the life of a leading scientist". See more »
