Competitive ice skater Tonya Harding rises amongst the ranks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, but her future in the activity is thrown into doubt when her ex-husband intervenes.
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 teach 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.
I mean, come on! What kind of friggin' person bashes in their friend's knee? Who would do that to a friend?
When Tonya leaves here house and the press is waiting for her, she doesn't close her front door thus making the cinematographer able to leave the house as well.
At the beginning of the ending crawl, actual interview footage of LaVona Fay Golden, Shawn Eckhardt, and Tonya Harding is shown that mirrors some of the recreated interviews shown in the film.
