In 1988, Eddie Edwards became the first person to represent Great Britain in the Olympic Ski Jumping event. This film, premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, celebrates 'notoriously tenacious' Eddie's story, starring Taron Egerton with Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken, Iris Berben and Jim Broadbent. "A weirdly mythologised, heavily fictionalised story of Team GB's only ski jumper at the 1988 Winter Olymics"   "The film turns a long-running joke of British sport into a crowd-pleasing story of inspiration. It’s a solid gold winner"
