Wonderful feel-good, British comedy based on the true story of Eddie Edwards, a never say die underdog ski jumper trying to reach the 1988 Winter Olympics.
Michael “Eddie the Eagle” Edwards (Taron Egerton) participation in the 1988 Winter Olympics at Calgary marked the first time a Brit had ever competed in the ski-jumping event. Edwards trains as a ski jumper under the tutelage of a hard-drinking former champ (Hugh Jackman), and eventually finds fame as a lovable loser who’s just trying his best. Directed by Dexter Fletcher.
