Trivia:
In the film, Eddie trains in Garmisch (a.k.a. Garmisch-Partenkirchen), Germany, but in reality, he learned how to ski jump in Lake Placid in the U.S.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: The ski jump competitions Edwards took part in at the Calgary winter games were held on two February days, 01:30 resp. 02:00 PM local time. Given the time difference of 7 hours, in England it was around or even after sunset when it was Edwards' turn. Nevertheless in the movie, when his parents in England are watching him jump live on TV, bright sunlight is shining through the windows in the background.See more »

Must See feel good Movie, 12 February 2016
Author: homer-45872 from Monroe, Michigan

With a nice touch of humor you cannot come away from this movie without feeling a sense of accomplishment regardless of the actual outcome. The movie inspires you to reflect on any challenge we may have faced on our own lives and inspires us to actually rethink how we may have handled it or behaved differently. Taron Edgerton played a very believable character giving the audience a real sense at who Eddie Edwards really was and how he lived his youth through perseverance and fortitude by simply not giving up. The film cleverly portrays this very quickly through a brief introduction into Eddies childhood. The story is written well and the story really gives us a sense of who Eddie is and the drive to fulfill a promise to himself. Hugh Jackman brings a humorous side to the film with just enough serious touch that you do not loose sight of the significant effort that was made by Eddie Edwards. I was glad to be invited to a early preview and hope that all who see this film enjoy it as much as I did.
