Ed­die The Ea­gle

Sky Pre­miere, 8.30pm

Star­ring Taron Eger­ton, Hugh Jack­man. The ul­ti­mate feel-good movie based on the true story of Bri­tish Olympic ski-jumper Michael ‘Ed­die’ Edwards who be­came the un­likely star of the 1988 Calgary Win­ter Olympics thanks to his com­i­cal flap­ping-bird ges­tures after com­plet­ing a ski-jump. An un­usual sports biopic in that it cel­e­brates par­tic­i­pa­tion rather than achieve­ment, this is a joy­ful homage to the power of self-be­lief. ★★★★
