American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference, the laws of physics and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford and challenge Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.
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.
The flight takes place in real time in the movie. See more »
Amelia Wren pronounces "caelum certe" with hard C's. This is the current, "reconstructed Classical" pronunciation; however, in the 1860s the standard Latin pronunciation used would have been with soft C's. 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!!
