Synopsis by Jack Rodgers
This biopic uses the format of a faux documentary to trace the rise and scandal-fueled fall of figure skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie). Pushed into skating by her domineering mother (Allison Janney), Harding finds great success, yet ends up clashing with the sport's desire to mold its female athletes into an image of wholesomeness. Later, her career comes crashing down when her ex-husband (Sebastian Stan) orchestrates an attack on rival skater Nancy Kerrigan. Directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl).
