Based on the true events of American figure skater Tonya Harding’s life, I, Tonya is a dark period comedy recounting one of the most sensational scandals in sports history.
Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan.
Centered around the performances from Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding and Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, earning them Lead and Supporting Actress Oscar nominations respectively, I, Tonya is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked – and checkered – glory.
“A never-better Robbie and Janney hold up a mirror to the tabloid America most of us ignore or dismiss – and make us see ourselves reflected in it, too. I, Tonya is funny as hell, but the pain is just as real. You’ll laugh till it hurts.” – Rolling Stone
