Set in 1862, The Aeronauts follows wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Jones) and ambitious scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne) as they mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone has before.  The official synopsis reads: 

“This is a journey to the very edge of existence, where the air is thin and the chances of survival are slim.  As their perilous ascent reveals their true selves, this unlikely pair discover things about each other – and themselves – that help them find their place in the world they have left behind.”

The film is being produced by Amazon Studios and will be released next year.
