I, Tonya DVD

| DVD

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 I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and... career in all of its uncheckedand checkeredglory.

    Editor Review

    This is a great film with more than a hint of pathos. Tonya is not instantly likeable, but it is hard not to feel deep sympathy for her very challenging life and Margot Robbie brings out the tenacity and egocentric aspects of her character to great effect.
    There is a significant amount of domestic violence which although is not pleasant to watch is important in demonstrating how Tonya's character was developed. Alison Janey is superb as the chain smoking, emotionally void mother who fails at every opportunity to demonstrate any love to her daughter but who does deliver some hilarious lines. As for authenticity it is difficult to know. We are meant to see Tonya as a victim - she has to work; make her own outfits; and is married to an underachieving and de-masculated husband, with an even sadder molly coddled friend, Shawn. I found it hard to believe Tonya didn't know about deliberate attempt to hurt Nancy, her fellow competitor and the film is deliberately vague. There is not sense of Tonya sympathising with the victim either. Sone great 1980's makeup and impressive ice dancing scenes but I wasn't left with a dry throat emotion that the real thing brings out.

    Verdict
    Very entertaining, funny and rather sad too!
