‘Eddie the Eagle’

eddie-the-eagle-movie-posterEntertaining if lightweight biopic of Michael ‘Eddie’ Edwards, a tenacious underdog and outsider who represented Britain at the 1998 Calgary Winter Olympics.

Edwards (Taron Egerton – Kingsman: The Secret Service, Legend) may have been placed last in both the 70 and 90 metre ski jump competition, but he charmed the world, epitomising  the ‘taking part rather than winning’ of the Olympic movement.
