I enjoy watching movies that are true stories about people who are determined and inspiring. And with the Olympics coming up, Eddie The Eagle releasing on Blu-ray June 14th, is timely. I have heard a lot of buzz about this movie and am eager to watch it!
Taron Egerton co-stars alongside ACADEMY AWARD® Nominee Hugh Jackman* in this high-flying, feel-good story inspired by true events. Egerton plays Eddie The Eagle Edwards, 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 (Jackman), the lovable underdog wins the hearts of fans around the world by making an unforgettable showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.
I think I was about 12 during the Calgary Winter Olympics and watched a lot of figure skating. I may have watched some of the ski jumping as well but I don't remember. I have always been amazed by the strength and determination of the athletes as they compete. And though I have always stood by team USA, I love how we can get behind all of the athletes and cheer on the underdogs as well. The Olympics is a chance for everyone to shine and support each other.
If you like a feel-good movie based on real people, you'll want to watch Eddie The Eagle!
