Golden Globes nominated film “I, Tonya” depicts former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding’s (Margot Robbie) childhood and young adulthood through domestic abuse, aspirations towards Olympic success, and downfall after speculation that she organized the attack on competitor Nancy Kerrigan prior to the 1994 Winter Olympics.

The movie told from Harding’s perspective centralizes on the theme that she was a victim to a critical mother (Allison Janney), a controlling husband (Sebastian Stan), and to accusations of foul play against Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver).
