Eddie the Eagle

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

The story of Great Britain's first ski jumper to enter the Winter Olympics, (anti)hero Eddie 'the Eagle' Edwards.
Following the realisation of the childhood dream of Michael Edwards (a.k.a Eddie), and his unflinching determination to become Great Britain’s first Olympic ski-jumper (whether he had the requisite talent or not). Reluctantly aided by former ski-jumper Bronson Peary as his coach, Eddie is unwavering in his quest to reach the 1988 Calgary Winter Games.
An uplifting, inspirational story that celebrates human spirit, passion, and one man’s refusal to accept defeat.
