The Aeronauts is one-half survival tale and one-half historical drama, based loosely on the story of James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) and Henry Coxwell’s ascent to a then-record height of 37,000, accomplished in a hot air balloon. Except for The Aeronauts, Coxwell has been replaced by the fictional Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones), an amalgamation of real women pilots with a healthy dose of inspiration from Sophie Blanchard, who was as much show-woman as pioneering aeronaut. Full Story

Prince Andrew, the British royal family (sweat) stain, has been the Queen’s biggest problem in years – so much so that her handling of the Andrew scandal has led to doubts about her leadership.

With Queen & Slim director Melina Matsoukas jumps from music videos to feature films, and her background in visual media shows in the style and rhythm of her long-form work. Queen & Slim is strikingly visual and operates almost like a series of vignettes connected by musical interludes.
