Tonya Harding was one of the best figure skaters since winning her first national title in 1991. Unfortunately, Harding’s career came to a crashing end in 1994 following a heinous attack on fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan at the Olympic trials. Despite taking no part in the assault, Harding was banned from skating in the U.S. for life. Of course, Hollywood loves to capitalize on tragedies, which brings us to I, Tonya, starring Margot Robbie (The Suicide Squad, The Wolf of Wall Street), Sebastian Stan (The Martian, Avengers: Endgame), and Allison Janney (Spy, The Help), the story documents Harding’s life leading up to the vicious assault on Nancy Kerrigan at the Olympic Trials. Upon release, the movie received high critical praise from critics, some hailing the storytelling for humanizing Harding, with Christy Lemire of RobertEbert.com describing the movie as, “Goodfellas on ice”. Currently, the film has a 90% on rotten tomatoes and was nominated for four Academy Awards, with Allison Janney winning for best-supporting actress. So, is I, Tonya the Goodfellas of ice-skating movies? Considering the fact that Blades of Glory is the only other notable ice-skating movie in the mainstream, then sure, I, Tonya is technically the Goodfellas of ice-skating. However, in truth, I, Tonya, is a good movie that’s bogged down a bit because of the lack of true focus. Let’s dive deeper into this 2017 bio-pic.
