Was Eddie really as clumsy as shown in the movie? And some of you have soared like eagles," remarked Frank King, the games' chief executive, during a speech at the closing ceremonies. With very little time to qualify for the Winter Olympics in CalgaryAlbertaEddie and Bronson employ various unorthodox methods to condition and refine Eddie's form, and he successfully completes the 40m hill. Comedian Steve Coogan was originally chosen for the title role. Over the phone, Bronson criticises Edwards for not taking the sport seriously.

Was that true? That was crazy. The screenwriter called Peary "a former golden-boy skier and a burnout"; he's the stand-in for the cynical modern audiences who are about to have their hearts melted by the bespectacled Olympian. Woven in and among his uniquely-styled music are influences from bluegrass, country, folk, jazz, blues, rock, gospel, and rockabilly, transcending into a unique and heady sound, part of the past, present, and definitely the future.

And, toward the end, Eddie the Eagle book a wonderfully bizarre bit of casting, he brings in Christopher Walken as a legendary coach who literally wrote the book on ski jumping. And it's a shame that a movie about a man with zero athletic ability, who had the fearlessness to attempt a perilous meter ski jump for the first time ever in front of a rapt Olympic audience, takes no chances. Photograph: Getty Images After Calgary, he had a trust set up for him, but it failed and by he was declared bankrupt. In Eddie the Eagle, Edwards tells his fascinating life story, from his modest upbringing in Gloucestershire, to his obsessive devotion to ski jumping, to stardom on the world stage, taking us inside one of the most improbable and heartwarming sports stories of our time.
