‘Eddie the Eagle’ (2016)
‘Eddie the Eagle’ follows the realisation of the childhood dream of Michael ‘Eddie’ Edwards (Taron Egerton), to become Britain’s first Olympic ski-jumper. Despite not being athletically gifted, from an early age he dedicated his life to achieving one goal: to become an Olympian. Eddie tried his hand at various sports and disciplines, including downhill skiing, before settling on ski-jumping. Begging and borrowing equipment, and reluctantly aided by former ski-jumper Bronson Peary (Hugh Jackman) as his coach, Eddie is unwavering in his quest to reach the 1988 Calgary Winter Games. This is an uplifting, inspirational story that celebrates human spirit, passion, and one man’s refusal to accept defeat.
