Margot Robbie is disgraced champion U.S. figure skater Tonya Harding in this biopic that chronicles her tough upbringing, rise to Olympic stardom, and fall to tabloid fixture. Co-stars Allison Janney (TV’s The West Wing) who won a Golden Globe for her supporting performance, and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Both Robbie and Janney have been nominated for Academy Awards for their performances.
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 (Caitlin Carver, Rules Don’t Apply).
