Margot Robbie-starring film that gets a UK release tomorrow (February 23).
The movie depicts the life of ice skater Tonya Harding, her rise through the ranks of the US Figure Skating Championships, and the downfall of her career – stemming from an incident in which rival Nancy Kerrigan was attacked by Harding’s ex-husband.
I, Tonya currently has scores of 90 percent and 77 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic, respectively. In i">>NME‘s four-star review, Olly Richards wrote: “While the film is predominantly a comedy, and a very, very funny one, it goes to some dark places, showing Harding’s abuse at the hands of her husband and the tongue of her mother. She’s the butt of the sport’s jokes too – a goose trying to swim with swans – yet she keeps coming back. Believe her or not, she’s a hell of a subject for a hell of a movie.”
