Description

Margot Robbie ("The Wolf of Wall Street," "Suicide Squad") has her greatest role yet. She takes the lead in this darkly comic saga about disgraced Olympian figure skater Tonya Harding,// a working-class heroine who became an international villain in 1994 when her chief rival, Nancy Kerrigan, had her knee smashed in the lead-up to the Lillehammer games. When a conspiracy was revealed, Harding's career was doomed. Variety praised "a tone of poker-faced goofball Americana that suggests a biopic made by the Coen brothers," while the Hollywood Reporter called the Toronto International Film Festival hit "lively and lurid."
