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.
Generally, people either love Tonya or... not big fans. Just like people either love America or they're not big fans. Tonya was... totally American.
Near the end of the film, while Jeff is explaining how the media so quickly moved on from his story to the next new item in the news cycle, the new van parked in front of his home is a newer model Ford E-Series van than what was used at the time. While that body style of E-Series was in production at the time, lights and wheels of the van signify it as being from at least 2001 or later. Also, the equipment mounted on the van is not what would be common for that time.
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.
