I rated I, Tonya (2017) 7/10 #IMDb

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5580036

A very well-done Pseudo-documentary movie about the Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding.

Tonya, played by Margot Robbie, states the unreliable nature of any of the narrative early on. Irrespective, this is an entertaining, brilliantly played, and tough tale of abuse, dedication, and coming from the wrong side of the tracks.

The inept plot to scare a rival skater is played entirely credibly despite its ridiculousness. A far cry from the slick capers of fictional thrillers and crime movies.

The movie is a mix of character interviews and re-enactment of accounts of events.

This film has repeated images of domestic abuse and bullying.

It is well worth watching despite its niche sport setting. Go see this instead of hours of Winter Olympic footage.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
