From the proverbially wrong side of the racetracks in Portland, Oregon, former figure skater Tonya Harding has never been fully accepted in the figure skating community because she was not inherently the image of grace, breed and privilege that the community wanted to portray, though she was athletic, of course. Although she is a national champion, world champion, Olympic gold medalist and the first American competing in the Triple Axel to do some figure skating success, she is best known for her association with "The Incident": Leg Am 6. In January 1994, Nancy Kerrigan was beaten by her rival, who, unlike Tonya, was everything the figure skating community wanted from her peers. Her connection to the incident resulted in Tonya being banned from figure skating for life. Tonya's story of the beginning of her figure skating life at the age of four until after the incident is presented. In addition to Tonya herself, key people in her life give her perspective on her role in her life. Although they may agree on the general issues, for example, that the incident happened, they can be very different in their memory of the details. These people are: her waitress, mother Lavona Golden, who, although she had paid for her expensive figure skating lessons, abused her physically and emotionally, never believed that she was good enough in any aspect of the word, and that she pulled out of school, to concentrate exclusively on figure skating; Diane Rawlinson, her first and longest-serving coach, who made Tonya largely Tonya, whether she was good or bad, in the way she introduced herself to the world of figure skating; Jeff Gillooly, her first husband, the two, who also had a turbulent relationship because they wanted to be loved without really loving the other; Jeff's friend and Tonya's bodyguard Shawn Eckardt, a dim light bulb that considered itself a larger player in the grand scheme of life than it actually was; and sports journalist Martin Maddox, a fictional character who generally comments on what the sports media wanted as a collective from Tonya and the incident.
Is there at least one person who hasn't heard of the I, Tonya film? I, Tonya seems quite similar to other hollywood movies, you watch online from time to time, but it's really different, you'll be surprised. I, Tonya has everything what makes any new movie a good movie. With such good actors cast, the movie just can't be bad. Producer of this movie was Craig Gillespie. After you watch whole movie, you can also find other movies directed by the same person by clicking the director name.
