PG-13 | | Biography, Comedy, Drama
The story of Eddie Edwards, the notoriously tenacious British underdog ski jumper who charmed the world at the 1988 Winter Olympics.
Dexter Fletcher, an actor before he became a director, has portrayed a character named Eddie in film and television at least twice. In Dead Cert (2010), he played Eddie Christian, while in Boon: Walking Off Air (1989), Fletcher portrayed Eddie Cotton.
To say that his style is unorthodox would be something of an understatement, but it obviously works for him.
At the 1988 Calgary Olympics, ski jumpers have their skis "v-style" (tips spread apart) while in the air. V-style ski jumping came to competition in the 1990s. At the Calgary Olympics, ski jumpers kept their skis parallel in the air.
Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation did not receive any payment or other consideration, or enter into any agreement, for the depiction of tobacco products in this film.
