I, Tonya Movie Review: First Off, I saw this movie knowing barely anything about Tonya Harding and the dreaded "Incident" that took place in 1994, so I went in cold turkey.
The Movie informs you about all sides of the argument against and for Tonya, not being too biased on either side. I, Tonya is about an olympic skater named Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie). She had been skating since she was very young, and the movie follows her growing up, everything leading up to "The Incident", and everything afterwards and how her career falls apart.
I've been mentioning "The Incident", but not explaining what happened. Tonya Harding had gotten a Death Threat before a skating match, and her abusive husband (played by Sebastian Stan) had the idea to send a Death Threat against a skater who was climbing higher than Tonya, Nancy Kerrigan. The Husband told his friend to send it. That Friend then told some shady people to BASH IN HER KNEE WITH A CLUB so he would get the attention. After the incident, Tonya and her Husband were questioned by the FBI, and didn't say anything. Eventually, the Husband, his friend and the shady individuals were arrested. Tonya Harding was banned for life from Skating, and then she became a boxer. Tonya Harding knew about the letter (death threat), but not even the Husband knew about the attack. In the media, Tonya Harding was blamed for the incident. She was constantly asked about it, and didn't want to talk about it. In her childhood, she was abused by her mother (played by Allison Janney) and her father left them, so Tonya was alone with her cynical mother, who didn't seem to love Tonya, thinking her as more of an annoyance and chore to take care of her. Allison Janney just won the Best Supporting Actress in Any Motion Picture Golden Globe, and she deserved it. She was great. The whole cast was great. Margot Robbie, who had only been in Wolf of Wall Street and (the AMAZING) Suicide Squad, also won the Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical at the Critic's Choice Awards. Everyone was great, and the events all seemed real and from what I heard, they are portrayed well in the movie.I loved I, Tonya. It was way better than I expected. I will give I, Tonya
