#var:page_name# cover

In 1991, talented figure skater Tonya Harding becomes the first American woman to complete a triple axel during a competition. In 1994, her world comes crashing down when her ex-husband conspires to injure Nancy Kerrigan, a fellow Olympic hopeful, in a poorly conceived attack that forces the young woman to withdraw from the national championship. Harding’s life and legacy instantly become tarnished as she’s forever associated with one of the most infamous scandals in sports history.

Earning her second Oscar nomination, Australian actress Margot Robbie (THE WOLF OF WALL STREET) shines as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding a somewhat free-wheeling biopic that is equal-parts hilarity and tragedy. Allison Janney took home the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for her turn as Harding‘s caustic mother in I, TONYA,

“I, TONYA is a wild and entertaining exploration of one of sport’s most controversial figures, spearheaded by excellent performances from the cast.” (Screen Rant)

“With such a dynamic central performance, this hilarious mockumentary account of Tonya Harding’s rivalry with Nancy Kerrigan skates close to celebrating her… A bleakly hilarious tale of absolute unrepentance.” (The Guardian)

“With a top-flight cast and a willingness to turn tragedy into farce, I, TONYA is a risky comi-tragedy that succeeds on the power of its performances.” (Vanity Fair)
