Eddie the Eagle – This is your moment!
“The film follows the realization of the childhood dream of Michael Edwards a.k.a Eddie (played by Taron Egerton), and his unflinching determination to become Great Britain’s first Olympic ski-jumper. 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. Eddie the Eagle is an uplifting, inspirational story that celebrates human spirit, passion, and one man’s refusal to accept defeat.”
