Aro Recommended Eddie the Eagle


UK 2016, 106 minutes
Dir. Dexter Fletcher
Rating: [PG] Coarse language and sexual references
Genres: Comedy, Drama

Topics: Sport.


“Prepare to be amused, moved and inspired.”~Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

Aroview: Feelgood biopic about the infamous British ski-jumper Eddie Edwards whose lack of athletic prowess and unlikely character charmed the world at the 1988 Olympics.

While factual in charting his sporting accomplishments, which are depicted with gusto, this does play fast and loose with his background story to shore up the entertainment value of the triumphant underdog. And why not?
