Margot Robbie stars as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in the biopic about her life that lead up to the attack on her rival Nancy Kerrigan in I, TONYA. Sebastian Stan plays her husband and mastermind behind the attack. The new trailer clearly faults Harding’s mother for the skater’s misfortune. Allison Janey as always will be the scene stealer as the horrid mother who mistreated her daughter.
I, TONY opens in movie theaters December 8
Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie’s I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked––and checkered––glory.
