Based on the true story of an unconventional British athlete who surprised the world by competing in the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics

"Eddie the Eagle" is a heart-warming and quirky movie about an eccentric young man who, from an early age, and with no athletic prowess whatsoever, is determined to become an Olympian. With his tireless dedication and infectious optimism, this lovable underdog somehow manages to make his dream come true, with the help of a down-and-out coach. Stunning ski scenes, surprising cameo appearances and authentic performances from the cast all contribute, but Eddie the unlikely hero is the star. This feel-good film soars.
