I, Tonya is a dark comedy that will simultaneously make you gasp in shock and laugh out loud.
The movie tells the story of Tonya Harding, a polarising Olympic figure skater from the “wrong side of the tracks”.
In the early 1990s, Harding made headlines around the world for all the wrong reasons.

Just before the 1994 Olympics, she became embroiled in a plot to hurt her rival on the ice, Nancy Kerrigan.
Harding and Kerrigan were about to go head-to-head in the US Championships, a competition which would determined who would represent America at the Olympics.
Kerrigan, however, never made it to the competition.
As she was leaving a practice session at the Cobo Arena ice rink the night before the Championships, she was viciously assaulted by a stranger.
The unknown man, who was wearing at black hood at the time of the attack, targeted the kneecap on her landing leg.
The world looked on in horror as the moments before and after the attack were caught on camera. An hysterical Kerrigan was filmed lying on the ground, screaming and crying, and asking ‘Why?’ over and over again.
Luckily, the assailant didn’t break any bones. Kerrigan was left bruised and swollen and she had a severe limp, which meant she wasn’t able to compete in the Championships the next day.
