BFI London Review: ‘The Aeronauts’ is an Adventurous Family-Friendly Slice of Victorian Nostalgia

The Oscar-garlanded pairing of Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones reteam five years after The Theory of Everything for The Aeronauts, an adventurous family-friendly slice of Victorian nostalgia about the exploits of plucky balloonists who risk all for the pursuit of science.

In 1862 London, Redmayne again plays a scientist in his awkward-quirky puppy-dog face vein as a forerunner meteorologist James Glaisher whose climatological predictions he says can only be checked high up in the air. Jones is his erstwhile sidekick Amelia Wren, but being the only pilot of the pair, it’s quickly established that she’s the one in charge. Both are victims of people who lord over them, James because of the old white men who dismiss his avant-guard experiments, and Amelia because of her sex.

The film goes at quite a clip, with the hair-raising balloon flight itself unspooling in almost real-time. Flashbacks fill in the intermediate gaps,

‘The Two Popes’: Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins face off in Fernando Meirelles drama
Fernando Meirelles‘ “The Two Popes” chronicles the efforts of the conservative Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins) and the liberal Pope Francis (Jonathan Pryce) to find common ground and forge a new path for the Catholic Church. This intriguing and entertaining story of two men with different ideologies is a showcase for the two veteran actors. It is a delight to see these titans of British acting go head to head and share the screen together in this film, which Netflix will release in theaters on Nov. 27, in advance of streaming starting on Dec. 20

While Hopkins is given top billing (probbly because he is the bigger name thanks to his Oscar win and three further nominations) this is very much Pryce’s picture. It tells the story of Francis from his days as a young priest and rise to cardinal in war-torn Argentina to his election as pontiff. The actor captures the

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Actor (Updated: September 30)
Historically the Best Actor Oscar has gone to men with a little grey in their hair while Best Actress is usually given to an ingenue. However, we could be seeing a shift in that bias on both sides. At the 2019 Oscars, Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) won Best Actor at age 37 over a past winner and three previous nominees. Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”) did likewise in 2017. (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2020 Oscars predictions for Best Actor.)

While Affleck won for a fictional role, Malek prevailed for portraying Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. Of the 10 most recent Best Actor champs at the Academy Awards, seven of them won for bring life to real-life fellows: Colin Firth; Daniel Day-Lewis; Matthew McConaughey; Eddie Redmayne; Leonardo DiCaprio; and Gary Oldman.

Malek was a first-time nominee while each of his four rivals in the 2019 Best Actor race had contended multiple times at the Oscars.
