I, Tonya: Biopic with Margot Robbie as figure skating star Tonya Harding, who is accused of ordering an attack on her rival.
The 1994 Winter Olympics come to a real thriller. Of all the figure skating becomes the crowd puller, as Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie), at this time already as “ice witch” screamed, and their rival meet. The reason for this is a dirty piece of sports history: Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver) was attacked a month ago by a stranger and injured with an iron bar at the knee. Now she is back on the ice.
Tonya Harding grew up under the poorest conditions in a trailer park in Portland, Oregon. She was abused by her mother (Allison Janney) and trimmed to a figure skater. Tonya is very talented and ambitious. Soon she is at the top of the world. When the qualification for the 1994 Winter Olympics is due, her husband Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan) and her bodyguard hires the attacker, who will strike down Nancy Kerrigan.
The furious biopic by Craig Gillespie is a wild ride through a dark piece of sports history. At the same time, the biography of Tonya Harding offers insights into the life situation of the underclass of America. The milieu study and sports drama meet in an extraordinary film that was not reasonably nominated for three Golden Globes in the categories Best Movie (Musical or Comedy) and Best Actor (Margot Robbie) – Allison Janney even took home her Best Supporting Actress Award ,
At the Academy Awards in 2018 “I, Tonya” was also nominated in the categories Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Cut. Although Margot Robbie was listed as a hot candidate, Allison Janney could again accept their award for Best Supporting Actress.
