Straight from the shoulder, I have to be honest — I don’t like this. What the trailer is putting out, I mean. It feels like a fucking family movie. Dad, mom and the kids munching popcorn. The idea seems to have been to create product that would make money. I know it’s based on the real-life balloon exploits of James Glaisher (played by Eddie Redmayne), but Felicity Jones‘s Amelia Wren character was invented to satisfy “woke”-ness. A seat-of-the-pants feeling tells me this isn’t trustworthy. I don’t believe any of it. The movie (which will show at Telluride) might be a different deal but I doubt it.
