Team TLC Movie Night: My choice: “Eddie the Eagle”

I say, “I love this movie! The underdog who proves all the naysayers wrong. Based on the true story of Eddie Edwards, British ski jumper in the 1988 Winter Olympics.”

Quote from the movie, “The important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle.” -Pierre De Coubertin, Founder of the Olympic Games … I needed that Mr. De Coubertin. Thank you!

Thomas says, “I liked it a lot. First good drama I’ve seen in a while. It had the opposite of what other drama movies have. It was good.”

Lillian says, “Good, dramatic, action-filled, emotional, inspirational, and liked some of the music.”
