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 »

Good Fairy tale
22 December 2019 | by theologos-13221See all my reviews

The movie is quite enjoyable as a fairy tale. It's supposed to be based on a true story, but to be politically correct Amazon has rewritten history and turned one of the two main characters to a women. It was two men, not a man and women. There is no need to rewrite history. I'd be annoyed if they make a movie about Amelia Earhart and turned her into a man. It's history. Just do the history.

I'd rated this a 9 if they hadn't lied by saying this is based on true events.

The acting is pretty good and the story line is good and it's fairly clean.
