Eddie the Eagle
Rune stars in The story of Eddie Edwards, the notoriously tenacious British underdog ski jumper, who charmed the world at the 1988 Winter Olympics.
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.
A British-German-America co-production of Marv Films (UK), Studio Babelsberg (Germany) and Saville Productions (US), distributed in the US by 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate in the UK.
