Cast: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken, Keith Allen

British actor / director Dexter Fletcher (Sunshine on Leith) takes on the career of Michael “Eddie” Edwards, famously the first British ski-jumper ever to enter the Winter Olympics at Calgary in 1988, in the fantastically enjoyable Eddie the Eagle. Taron Egerton (Testament of Youth) is Edwards, who from his Gloucestershire childhood fosters the unlikely goal of becoming an Olympic athlete – despite lacking any obvious sporting skill. Eventually employing a hardball coach (Hugh Jackman), he never loses his determination to prove himself. A very British film about a very British hero – perhaps the ultimate underdog – that’s full of undeniable warmth and wit.
