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.
This film was the "first runner-up" at the People's Choice Award of the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.
She just said "Nancy Kerrigan trains at Tuna Can arena". She just said that.
Jeff Gillooly: Ok, well... Who's gonna name an arena "Tuna Can"?
Tonya Harding: Fishermen. Everyone's fishermen in Massachusetts.
At sanctioned figure skating events, flash photography is not permitted at any time the competitors are on the ice, including the warm up. It's a distraction and a potential hazard to the skaters.
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.
