Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
A married couple is forced to reckon with their idealized image of their son, adopted from war-torn Eritrea, after an alarming discovery by a devoted high school teacher threatens his status as an all-star student.
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.
Early in the film, Felicity Jones mentions Stardust. Stardust was the nickname for her character in Rogue One, as well as being the name assigned to the plans for the Death Star. Soon after, she says "and so it begins", a phrase often used in Star Wars See more »
Several characters seem to address the widowed Amelia as Miss Wren, which is her maiden name, instead of Mrs Rennes. However, since the French name Rennes is pronounced exactly the same as the English name Wren, they could very well be saying the correct name. See more »
Acrophobia. I have this. If you also suffer from this condition, it will turn this into a horror movie. It will be worse than The Exorcist or Jaws. I mean, why do they have to climb all over the basket and lean over the sides and not tie themselves in? If it were me, we would all have on harnesses and be tied securely in.
This movie is exciting, and a little bit historical. I love adventure movies, and historical adventures, and Victoriana, so this was right up my alley. I don't know how true the events are, I don't know if the woman really did the things she did in this movie, but it was thrilling to watch, nonetheless.
But for the love of God and all things holy, PLEASE, stop leaning over the side of the basket, and harness yourselves in!!
