News About "I, Tonya"
The tale of Tonya Harding ought to be one about the tenacity of the human spirit. Born in a humble home and raised in a dysfunctional family, she tackled the challenges of becoming a figure skater. She won several competitions that qualified her to participate in the Olympic games. And she was the first woman to land a triple axel.
But instead of being inspirational, her career took a tragic turn when she was implicated in the planning of a physical attack on her fellow competitor, Nancy Kerrigan.
In the movie, Margot Robbie stars as Tonya Harding. Her ex-husband and co-conspirator, Jeff Gillooly, is played by Sebastian Stan. And Allison Janney takes on the role of her aggressive mother, Latona Golden. Despite the seriousness of the situation, the screenplay (written by Steven Rogers and Craig Gillespie) tells her story with dark humor.
