I, Tonya movie review: a woman at war with herself

MaryAnn’s quick take… A black comedy about domestic violence, parental abuse, and low self-esteem (and it works!), one that challenges our appreciation of how true based-on-fact might be. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I’ve heard tell that there are people — young people, but still adult people — who have never heard of champion figure skater Tonya Harding and don’t know why she was famous for a while in the 1990s for reasons that had nothing to do with her athletic ability. This astonishes me, but probably shouldn’t. In fact, it’s a totally apropos underscore to I, Tonya’s running motif about the vagaries of fame and the inadvisability of putting all your emotional stock in it, as a wannabe famous person, current famous person,

‘I, Tonya’: How the Man Who Wrote ‘Hope Floats’ Created the Year’s Most Unexpectedly Empowering Feminist Biopic

‘I, Tonya’: How the Man Who Wrote ‘Hope Floats’ Created the Year’s Most Unexpectedly Empowering Feminist Biopic
There’s little on screenwriter Steven Rogers’ resume to indicate that he was interested in writing something like “I, Tonya,” the year’s most irreverent – and unexpectedly inspiring – biopic that follows the exploits of one of America’s signature fallen stars. After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival in September (where Neon and 30West acquired it for 2017 release), the film has steadily picked up awards steam, particularly for the mother-daughter performances of Allison Janney and Margot Robbie, who are both nominated for Critics’ Choice and Indie Spirit awards.

“I’m loving this,” Rogers said with a laugh. “Because you don’t get it on every movie, so when you do get it, you just hold it closely. Never one time, ever, when I started to write about Tonya Harding and Jeff Gillooly, did I think about awards season. The whole experience has been kind of miraculous.”

Rogers isn’t exaggerating.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy & Peta Murgatroyd Can't Get Enough of Each Other as They Celebrate Engagement Anniversary
Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are the definition of #RelationshipGoals!

The Dancing With the Stars pros took to Instagram on Tuesday to commemorate the day they got engaged two years ago. As fans of the couple will recall, Chmerkovskiy proposed to his now-wife on Dec. 5, 2015 while onstage for a performance of Sway: A Dance Trilogy in Miami, Florida.

"To my forever young, forever ambitious go-getter husband @maksimc ...I love you and it’s imperative that you know how much I appreciate you, for you, and life is always better with you in it," Murgatroyd captioned a paparazzi pic of Chmerkovskiy grabbing her toned bum.

Maks Chmerkovskiy & Peta Murgatroyd Gush Over Their 'Obsession for Each Other' in Anniversary Posts
There’s no doubt about it — Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are obsessed with each other.

Two years ago, the Dancing with the Stars pros got engaged when Chmerkovskiy, 37, got down on one knee on the dance floor during a performance of Sway at the Olympia Theater in Miami, in front of a joyous audience and a line of other dancers and proposed to Murgatroyd, 31.

To celebrate the anniversary of that happy day, the pair — they welcomed son Shai Aleksander in January and wed in July — each took to Instagram on Tuesday to reflect on their engagement and the life they now share together.

Margot Robbie Gets Nasty in I, Tonya Red Band Trailer

Margot Robbie Gets Nasty in I, Tonya Red Band Trailer
"The haters always say, 'Tonya, tell the truth.' There's no such thing as truth. Everyone has their own truth." Tonya Harding was the best figure skater in the world at one point in time. That all came crashing down when she made one horrible mistake that she could never take back. Her tale is a legend now being told in an inspiring, insane and sometimes hilarious biopic. Today, we have the red band and green band full-length trailer for I, Tonya. And it's really something else.

While Tonya Harding set out to achieve Olympic gold, it appears that Margot Robbie has her sights set on a different kind of gold. Oscar gold. And this is clearly a career best performance, as evidenced in the latest footage, which arrives both in family friendly form as well as a ribald R rated trailer that let's the nastier side of Tonya Harding's harrowing story shine through.

Teaser Watch: There’s No Such Thing as Truth in “I, Tonya”

“I, Tonya”: Neon

The newly released teaser for Tiff darling and Gotham Award nominee “I, Tonya” shows figure skating legend Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) doing what she (first) became famous for: the incredibly difficult triple axel. As she twirls in mid-air, Tonya muses on America’s need to label people as heroes or villains. “The haters always say, ‘Tonya, tell the truth,’” she thinks to herself. Then she decides, “There’s no such thing as truth, I mean it’s bullshit.”

Robbie’s delivery is hilarious, but that credo could also be “I, Tonya’s” thesis statement. Most of us think we know the truth about the real-life Harding and what happened between her and competitor Nancy Kerrigan at the Figure Skating Championships — but Craig Gillespie’s new film makes it clear that we don’t.

The jokes about Harding fail to reference the abuse she withstood from her mother, Lavona Golden, and then-husband, Jeff Gillooly. And it’s also possible, as “I, Tonya” hints, that Harding was not the one responsible for the attack on Kerrigan.

“I, Tonya” was penned by Steven Rogers (“P.S. I Love You”) and co-stars Allison Janney (“Mom”) and Sebastian Stan (“Captain America” franchise) as Tonya’s mother and husband, respectively. Robbie is up for a Gotham Award for her performance.

The dark comedy will open in NY and La on December 8, followed by a platform rollout continuing into January.

Hilary Swank to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller ‘I Am Mother’ (Exclusive)

Hilary Swank to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller ‘I Am Mother’ (Exclusive)
Hilary Swank is starring in the science-fiction thriller “I Am Mother,” which has started shooting at South Australia’s Adelaide Studios, Variety has learned exclusively.

Swank, who won best actress Academy Awards for “Million Dollar Baby” and “Boys Don’t Cry,” is joining Clara Rugaard in a unique mother-daughter story.

Rugaard portrays the first of a new generation of humans raised by “Mother” – a kindly robot designed to repopulate the earth following the extinction of mankind. But their unique bond is threatened when a blood-drenched woman (played by Swank) inexplicably arrives, calling into question everything she’s been told about the outside world.

I Am Mother” is based on an original concept by director Grant Sputore and writer Michael Lloyd Green. The screenplay was on the 2016 Black List.

I Am Mother” is Sputore’s feature debut. The special effects team at Weta Workshop (“Avatar,” “The Lord of The Rings”) has created the titular robot.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Box Office Carnage: Sony and Ryan Gosling Stand to Lose, but Roger Deakins Still Stands to Win

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Box Office Carnage: Sony and Ryan Gosling Stand to Lose, but Roger Deakins Still Stands to Win
It could have been worse: The final domestic weekend totals for “Blade Runner 2049” came to $32.7 million, about $1.25 million better than initial pre-Sunday estimates. That could mean all is not lost for Warner Bros. — but with production, marketing, and distribution around $300 million, it’s still a dreadful result. Who stands to suffer the most? Here are some losers — and, some possible winners.

Alcon Entertainment and Sony

Alcon, the 20 year-old production company founded by FedEx’s Fred Smith, has produced 31 films, with one big moneymaker (“The Blind Side”), some smaller successes (“Dude, Where’s My Car?,” “P.S. I Love You,” “Insomnia”) and several higher-budget flops (“Transcendence,” “Point Break”).

Its total investment in “Blade Runner 2049” isn’t totally clear. Sony is reported to have contributed $90 million for international rights, with its share of marketing expenses uncertain. So Alcon will neither bear the entire expense nor keep all the revenues, but it

New Geostorm Trailer Promises Destruction On An Epic Scale

Gerard Butler has done it all – when it comes to movies, that is. He’s fought against an army of Persians in 300, broken our hearts in P.S. I Love You, and saved the President of the United States not once, but twice, across Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. With Geostorm though, the Scottish actor is going up against what’s perhaps his greatest enemy yet: Mother Nature.

Skydance has peeled back the curtain once again to deliver another jaw-dropping trailer for the film, which triggers a storm of biblical proportions. Caught up in the midst of that global catastrophe is Butler’s astronaut, who’s sent to space on a mission to course-correct humanity’s climate-controlling satellites. But those same instruments designed to mitigate natural disasters soon become mankind’s worst enemy, and while suspended in outer space, Butler’s lead character uncovers a plot to assassinate the Potus – and no,

The Big Sick Review

In today’s movie-watching culture, festival buzz can be a killer. Look at The Witch. Early hype lauded Robert Eggers’ thriller as one of the year’s “scariest” films, which led mainstream audiences to expect something far less unconventional. In many ways, I was worried that the Judd Apatow-produced, Michael Showalter-directed The Big Sick would be slighted by similar “hilarious and heartfelt” proclamations. Could it truly be as funny and emotional as Sundance/SXSW attendees proclaimed? Short answer: 100%. Kumail Nanjiani and wife Emily V. Gordon bare their souls in this romantic-coma-dramedy, plucking all the appropriate heartstrings. So pure. So sweet. So tender. Hype can’t derail this rollercoaster of love.

Nanjiani stars as a struggling Chicago comedian/part-time Uber driver, Kumail (hmmm). Zoe Kazan stars as a blonde therapist-in-training named Emily (double hmmm), who takes a shining to the Pakistani funnyman. What starts as a one-time fling blossoms into relationship bliss,

Why I Watch The Ref Every Christmas Eve

Why I Watch The Ref Every Christmas Eve
Every family has their tradition when it comes to the holidays. Ever since I was a kid, we would celebrate with my father's side of the family on Christmas Eve, and then with my mother's side on Christmas Day, a tradition that has remained unchanged to this day. There is one tradition that we added on Christmas Eve night, maybe a decade or so ago, after my younger twin brothers and I would come back to my mom's house after spending the day with our father. We would watch the obscure 1994 R-rated Christmas comedy The Ref. Not It's A Wonderful Life or A Christmas Story or A Miracle of 41st Street, but an underrated and underseen comedy starring Denis Leary, post-Remote Control, Kevin Spacey, pre-Oscar win and Judy Davis, post-Oscar nomination. While The Ref may not be as revered as those aforementioned movies, I will always watch The Ref every Christmas Eve,

Margot Robbie to play infamous former figure skating champion Tonya Harding in I, Tonya

  • Cineplex
It was only three years ago that Australian actress Margot Robbie broke onto the scene.

She made a small appearance in Richard Curtis' romantic, sci-fi comedy About Time, and then nearly stole the show from Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in The Wolf of Wall Street. We're already obsessed with her soon to be seen performance as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, and now Margot has another high profile role to add to her resume, as the controversial former figure skating champion, Tonya Harding.

It has just been announced that Margot will be playing Harding, a disgraced American ice skater who infamously hired someone to break her competitor Nancy Kerrigan's leg, so that she would not be able to compete.

Margot will also have producing credits for the film, which is being written by Steven Rogers, most famous for penning P.S. I Love You and Kate & Leopold.

Margot Robbie is no ice queen, but she's about to play one. Deadline reported Monday that the actress has signed on to play figure skater Tonya Harding in the upcoming movie I, Tonya.

‘Flawed’ Movie Adaptation Moving Forward at Warner Bros. With ‘Zoo’ Writer

Warner Bros. is moving forward on its sci-fi film “Flawed,” with “Zoo” writer Rebekah F. Smith tapped to adapt the novel, Variety has learned exclusively.

The studio began developing the project in October when Warner Bros. optioned the movie rights to “Flawed,” the first young adult novel from “P.S., I Love You” author Cecelia Ahern. “Flawed” will be published by Feiwel and Friends (an imprint of the Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group) on April 5.

Wendy Finerman and Michelle Chydzik will produce the movie. Finerman and Ahern have a long-standing relationship that began when Finerman produced Hilary Swank’s “P.S. I Love You,” which grossed $156 million worldwide for Warner Bros. in 2007.

Flawed” is set in a world where anyone dubbed disobedient is deemed “flawed,” branded with F tattoos and forced to live as second-class citizens. When a popular teenager who’s living a perfect life attempts to stand up for

15 Actors Stuck In Hollywood’s Dog House

Wc

One minute you’re accepting an Oscar, revelling in the plaudits and the barely disguised envy of your fellow actors, partying long into the night at the behest of Vanity Fair, and trying not to spill Cristal on your borrowed Versace. The next you’re receiving an invitation from the Razzies and repeat dialling that studio boss who promised you the lead in the next big franchise, who now won’t return any of your calls. Popularity is a fickle mistress, and for the A-list superstar, B-list mediocrity is all too often a reality.

But why? Why are some of your favourite actors destined to be forever earmarked for supporting roles only? If it’s not down to talent, and so often it isn’t, why are these household names, and former darlings of award season red carpets left fighting for scraps behind the real elite.

Some you’ll
