"A FEEL - GOOD CROWD PLEASING TRIUMPH"
"Eddie The Eagle - a crowd-pleasing story of inspiration.
It’s a solid gold winner."
Most of us are very familiar with the story of Eddie, the wannabe ski jumper, but this film has buckets to give.
Directed by Dexter Fletcher (Sunshine on Leith) with Hugh Jackman front of house, this is a classic story of triumph over adversity and quite literally flying in the face of authority.
Cut from the Olympic ski team, British athlete Michael "Eddie" Edwards travels to Germany to test his skills at ski jumping. Fate leads him to Bronson Peary, a former ski jumper who now works as a snowplow driver. Impressed by Edwards' spirit and determination, Peary agrees to train the young underdog.
This warm-hearted story is told with great tenderness, yet played for comedy and huge entertainment throughout.
Despite an entire nation counting him out, Eddie's never-say-die attitude takes him all the way to a historic and improbable showing at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta.
This is a joyous period piece with an excellent sound track to ski-boot...
... and who doesn't like lemon meringue pie?
