Eddie The Eagle

Kingsman's Taron Egerton plays a plucky British ski jumper in this heartfelt underdog story. The year is 1988. The Winter Olympics is underway in Calgary and competing in the fearsome ski jump is sportsman Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards (Taron Egerton), the first British person ever to do so. With his glasses and lack of sporting finesse, Eddie is seemingly not cut out for the challenge but nevertheless showcases a determination to succeed. In fact, this irrepressible underdog spirit is set to transform him into the most unlikely of British sports stars. Based on the true story of the real-life ski jumper Eddie the Eagle, a man whose catalogue of failures turned him into an overnight news sensation, this is an endearing movie about triumphing against impossible odds. Directed by Dexter Fletcher, responsible for critically acclaimed, homegrown hits Wild Bill and Sunshine on Leith, the film co-stars X-Men megastar Hugh Jackman as Eddie's no-nonsense trainer Bronson Peary.
