Eddie The Eagle - 2016 - 6/10

Feel good biopic of unlikely celebrity of the ‘88 Calgary Winter Olympics.
Eddie Edwards has Olympic dreams, despite being far-sighted, ignored by teammates and country, and possessing limited funds.
He just wants to compete! And the Olympics are - supposedly - a celebration of amateur sport.
“Ski jumping," he decides. “Yeah, I can do that!"
Passable entertainment, the equivalent of sponge cake.
