On 13 March 2016 Mr C and I were invited to attend a preview of this movie that will be in UK cinemas from 1 April 2016.
This is the story of Eddie Edwards and his journey to the 1988 Winter Olympics.
Mr C and I are both big fans of the summer and winter Olympics and remember this story very well. Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards was the underdog British ski jumper who amazed the world, breaking British ski jump records and causing media madness.
The film follows Eddie through his life, all he ever wanted was to be in the Olympics and he achieved it. It’s funny and heartwarming, this film has you hooked from the beginning and often on the edge of your seat.
