She was the most famous person in the
World – after Bill Clinton. Tonya was the first American to complete two so-called Triple Axels in one competition – one of the most demanding jumps in figure skating. But her name will forever be linked to the botched assassination attempt on her rival Nancy Kerrigan, which would make her arch-rival unfit to train and secure Tonya’s victory in the US championships – but it turned out differently …
Nominated for three Oscars®, I, TONYA tells the astonishing true story of figure skater Tonya Harding, who oversaw one of the biggest and most baffling scandals in sports history.
With her multi-faceted portrait of Tonya Harding, Margot Robbie has found the role of her life for which she was nominated for Best Actress at the 90th Oscars®. In the role of Tonya’s icy, vicious mother LaVona Harding,is the also Oscar®-nominated Allison Janney (JUNO). The award-winning ensemble is supplemented by Sebastian Stan (LOGAN LUCKY) as Tonya’s impulsive ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, and Paul Walter Hauser as Tonya’s bodyguard and would-be secret agent.
