- Directed by: Craig Gillespie
- Cast: Margot Robbie, Allison Janney, Sebastian Stan, Paul Walter Hauser
- UK release: 23 February 2018
Sympathetic but blackly funny biopic of disgraced American skater Tonya Harding (Robbie), who suffered violent abuse from a young age and strove to get recognition in a sport that didn’t welcome her. Robbie does affecting, impressive and Oscar-nominated work and Janney revels in viciousness as Tonya’s awful mum LaVona.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
*Nominated for 3 Oscars, including Best Actress - Margot Robbie. *
This film is based on the true story of Tonya Harding, the figure skater who rose to prominence when she and her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly hired a man to break the leg of Tonya’s main rival Nancy Kerrigan.
A huge controversy at the time, the tale has been brought to the screen struck through with black humour. Margot Robbie (The Wolf Of Wall Street, Goodbye Christopher Robin) plays Tonya with Sebastian Stan as her ex.
