This film is based on true events and amazes the public with stunning visuals: experiencing the act of flying with all its beauties and dangers never felt so real in cinema.
Eddie Redmayne plays a real-life British meteorologist called James Glaisher, who wanted to advance his researches about the weather by going up in a hot-air balloon. It happened in the 1860s when people knew practically nothing about how to predict changes in the weather. James has valid theories in his field but he knows nothing about ballooning, so he teams up with a female balloonist called Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones). Together they embark on the biggest adventure of their lives, where they not only get the chance to admire nature's beauty, but they also have to push their limits while struggling with the elements of nature and suffering from the thinness of oxygen in the air.
