In May 1940, the fate of Western Europe hangs on British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who must decide whether to negotiate with Adolf Hitler, or fight on knowing that it could mean a humiliating defeat for Britain and its empire.
Kristin Scott Thomas
Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Walt Disney World.
From the proverbial wrong side of the tracks in Portland, Oregon, former competitive figure skater Tonya Harding was never fully accepted in the figure skating community for not inherently being the image of grace, breeding and privilege that the community wanted to portray, despite she being naturally gifted in the sport athletically. Despite ultimately garnering some success in figure skating being national champion, a world championship medalist, an Olympian, and being the first American woman to complete a Triple Axel in competition, she is arguably best known for her association to "the incident": the leg bashing on January 6, 1994 of her competitor, Nancy Kerrigan, who, unlike Tonya, was everything that the figure skating community wanted in their representatives. Her association to that incident led to Tonya being banned from competitive figure skating for life. Tonya's story from the beginning of her figure skating life at age four to the aftermath of the incident is presented...Written by
Margot Robbie mentioned in an interview that she had met the real Tonya Harding before shooting of this movie started. Together they talked about the difficulties Margot Robbie had with her ice skating training sessions. Tonya was really nice in trying to help her, according to Margot Robbie. She was worried Robbie would get hurt during training and suggested she could learn her some techniques at the ice skating hall near Tonya's home. Unfortunately Robbie didn't bring her ice skates along to the meeting with Tonya Harding, so they unfortunately never skated together. See more »
In actor Bobby Cannavale's multiple scenes as Martin Maddox, there is a clock on the wall in the background. The hands of the clock remain at 8:00 in each scene. See more »
I must have been at a different movie than those who did not like it. The story is well written, the acting was excellent and the twist in the way the story is delivered makes for a memorable event. At certain points when Tonya speaks to the audience she speaks right to you. A great story to get lost in and I was not really interested in seeing this when I went into the theater.
