Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie, in an Oscar-nominated role), 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 an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie’s I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked––and checkered––glory.

“A never-better Robbie and Janney hold up a mirror to the tabloid America most of us ignore or dismiss – and make us see ourselves reflected in it, too. I, Tonya is funny as hell, but the pain is just as real.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“I, Tonya takes greater risks with the biopic genre than any other in recent memory, and it’s remarkable how much of it lands upright. It’s the triple axel of based-on-true-story movies.” – Andrew Lapin, NPR
“An often genius, always subversive film about an outsider who isn’t easy to love yet at the same time hard to hate.” – Brian Truitt, Time Out
