I, Tonya

Margot Robbie is disgraced champion U.S. figure skater Tonya Harding in this biopic that chronicles her tough upbringing, rise to Olympic stardom, and fall to tabloid fixture. Co-stars Allison Janney (TV's The West Wing) who won an Oscar for her supporting performance, and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Both Robbie and Janney have been nominated for Academy Awards for their performances.

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 (Caitlin Carver, Rules Don't Apply).

A fresh, chancy, and wickedly enjoyable movie.

Destroyed yet defiant, Robbie walks the emotional tightrope of the most fabulously, tragically American film of the year.

As "I, Tonya" skips here and there and thickens the plot, it becomes increasingly baffling why the filmmakers decided to put a comic spin on this pathetic, dispiriting story.

It's brash and shaggy and while Robbie might not quite stick the landing, Janney's performance is gold.

I, Tonya ... gives Robbie the chance - her first, really - to show her full range as an actress. And she shines.

Tonya's been a punching bag for everyone, including the public. And yes, the film implicates us in that. But her defiance grows with every heckle, including her mother's.

Gillespie may be indebted to filmmakers like Martin Scorsese and David O. Russell, but the character depth and tonal control of their best work seem beyond his reach.

I, Tonya spins a convincing yarn despite, or maybe because of, its surfeit of unreliable narrators.

Like last year's The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, I, Tonya asks us to reconsider what we thought we knew in the '90s and realise that the headlines and the punchlines obscured a darker and more difficult story.

Robbie makes Tonya so sympathetic that it's easy to gloss over the film's major flaws.

Margot Robbie does a tremendous job of presenting to film goers a Tonya Harding that is just as much of a victim as Nancy Kerrigan was. The supporting cast also gave strong performances. A film you could easily see again.

The Tonya Harding drama unfolded in my teenage years. The years when I pretty much believed everything the media dished up to me and before I ever really thought about class and before I knew anything about domestic violence. But I did know some stuff. I knew about the pressure of sports performance because I swam every morning and every night for years as...

Here is the tale of how an American white trash girl almost made it to the top of her game but was scuppered by sheer reckless stupidity. Margot Robbie shines as the hapless skater and Alison Janney puts in an oscar worthy performance as the mother from hell. I came away exhausted as this film is action all the way. You don't need to know the story but it...

Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding became a household name in 1994 when, just prior to the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, rival skater Nancy Kerrigan had her legs bashed in a violent, unprovoked attack. When it was revealed that the assault was "masterminded" by Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, a tabloid feeding-frenzy resulted in instant infamy...
