I, Tonya is a darkly funny and entertaining examination of Tonya Harding, the most controversial figure in the history of figure skating, and the headline-grabbing scandal that mesmerized a nation.
Presenting multiple, and at times contradictory, perspectives of the events, the film explores the ways public opinion can be permanently shaped by news agendas and tabloid culture. But beyond the headlines, I, Tonya tells a complex story of resilience and perseverance, as a rebellious working-class girl pursues her dream competing in a “ladylike” sport, only to be caught up in controversy and criminal circumstances created by her involvement with those closest to her.
Based on the incredible true events, I, Tonya is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding (actress/producer Margot Robbie), and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with the infamous attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan.
I, Tonya also stars (Allison Janney, Academy Award winner Best Supporting Actress), Sebastian Stan, Bobby Cannavale and Julianna Nicholson, and is directed by Craig Gillespie from an original screenplay by Steven Rogers (P.S. I Love You). The film offers an often absurd, at times irreverent, and always piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked––and checkered––glory.
