The film directed by Dexter Fletcher is a story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards (Taron Egerton), an unlikely, but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself — even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach (played by Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. Eddie the Eagle stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never-say-die attitude.
