The Aeronauts is an exquisite film that is sure to become a classic for the family. This deeply emotional story is elevated by the stunning performances of Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne, who take us with them on an exhilarating ride. It's a fantastic film that I cannot wait to see in the theatre again.
