Randa and Dee from the Switchblade Sisters Social Club podcast join Flixwatcher to review Randa’s choice I, Tonya.
I, Tonya (2017) is mockumentary biographical sports film that follows the life and career of American figure skater Tonya Harding and her involvement in the assault of Nancy Kerrigan that led to the end of her professional skating career.
Directed by Craig (Lars and the Real Girl) Gillespie it stars Margot Robbie as Tonya (earning her a Best Actress Oscar nomination), Allison Janney as LaVona Golden, Tonya’s abusive mother (winner her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar), Sebastian Stan as Jeff Gillooly, Tonya’s abusive ex-husband and Paul Walter Hauser as Shawn Eckardt, Jeff’s friend and partner in the assault on Nancy Kerrigan.
I, Tonya blurs the lines between fact and fiction, using the Rashomon effect to tell story of Tonya’s rise to fan and the infamous incident, what is clear though is that Tonya was let down by everyone and suffered discrimination that other skaters didn’t face.
The recommendability scores for I, Tonya were very high and due to Randa’s peference for watching films on her phone for small screen to give an impressive overall rating of 4.21.
