Inspired by true events, this high-flying, feel-good story is sure to warm your heart and cool down your summer! Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards – an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper, enlists the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming an Olympian.
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. 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.
