Man, I still remember the conspiracy figure skater Tonya Harding participated in to attack competitor Nancy Kerrigan, so she couldn’t compete in the Olympics. Honestly, I had no idea that they were making a bio-pic of the scandal, but holy cow does it look amazing!
Check it out below!
Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and 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. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie’s I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked––and checkered––glory.
Like I said, amazing! I, TONYA is directed by Craig Gillepie, and stars Margot Robbie. And I can’t wait!
I, TONYA is set to open to a limited release on December 8th.
