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.
