Film: Eddie the Eagle (PG)
Mon, 12th June, 2017 @ 14:00pm - 16:00pm£3
Based on the true story of Eddie Edwards (Taron Egerton), a plumber from Cheltenham who had dreams of making it to the 1988 Winter Olympics, as Great Britain’s first-ever Olympic ski jumper.
★★★★”Eddie the Eagle‘s amiable sweetness can’t disguise its story’s many inspirational clichés — but for many viewers, it will be more than enough to make up for them.” Rotten Tomatoes
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.
★★★★ “Eddie The Eagle turns a long-running joke of British sport into a crowd-pleasing story of inspiration. It’s a solid gold winner.”Empire
