One of my favorite must see movies – “Eddie The Eagle”. It’s a truly inspirational story about the courage to fight for what you believe in and proving people wrong. I've always loved the idea of not being what people expect me to be.
Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael "Eddie" Edwards (Taron Egerton), 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 (played by ACADEMY AWARD® Nominee Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. From the producers of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie the Eagle stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude.
The important thing about being in the Olympic Games is not the winning but the taking part.
The most important lessons in life are not the triumphs but the struggles.
