Dir: Dexter Fletcher
Stars: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken, Jo Hartley
Michael “Eddie” Edwards is a legend of British winter sports, competing as a ski jumper in the Calgary Winter Olympics of 1988, despite little experience of this terrifying and demanding event. Fletcher adapts his life story into an engaging and uplifting comedy-drama, as the underdog (Egerton) finds a coach (Jackman) with a similar outsider spirit, to together prove the doubters wrong and fulfil Eddie’s Olympic dream. “A solid gold winner” (Empire Magazine).
Surprisingly hard to find a link to a review that will not demand that you click here or sign up to that or bring your system to a halt with unwanted ads, so lets cut to the chase with this Telegraph link to the trailer which also reviews the film (sort-of): http://www.telegraph.co.uk/film/eddie-the-eagle/trailer/
