'I, Tonya' blends humor and pathos at TIFF premiere with Margot Robbie as Tonya Harding

Among the most anticipated premieres of the Toronto International Film Festival’s first weekend was Craig Gillespie’s “I, Tonya,” starring Margot Robbie as notorious figure skater Tonya Harding. In part the anticipation was so high simply because few people knew what to expect from the movie: Would it be a satirical farce about tabloid-sordid events or a more dramatic look at Harding’s troubled life? The answer is yes.

Written by Steven Rogers and also starring Sebastian Stan as Harding’s husband Jeff Gillooly and Allison Janney as Harding’s mother, LaVona Golden, the movie finds unforeseen nuance in a story that many might assume they already know too well.
