As Mark Oguschewitz described in his EDDIE THE EAGLE movie review, the film follows Eddie’s journey from early in his life.  Although never athletically gifted he has one goal in which he wants to achieve- to make it into the Olympics.  After trying his hand at a variety of sports, he eventually settles on downhill skiing.  Then, after failing to make the 1984 British Olympics team, he decides to change his focus to the ski jumping competition, something that Britain has never competed in.  Having never attempted to participate in the sport of ski jumping, Eddie sets off on his own to learn all that he can about it.  Eventually, becoming friends with Bronson Perry, a former Olympian with a past, Eddie begins to train as hard as he can to make his Olympic dreams a reality.


Rated PG-13 EDDIE THE EAGLE portrays an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself – even as an entire nation was counting him out.  Watch it now on Digital HD. EDDIE THE EAGLE Blu-ray and DVD available June 14.
