Not that I’ve made much of an effort myselfhere lately, but time was this would’ve been a hot forum topic. This time last year we were arguing La La Land and its effects on the (then) 2024 race. Anyway... Went to see this yesterday, and gotta say, really enjoyed it. Is it a whitewash of Harding? Possibly, but it doesn’t really pretend to be THE truth. Whatever you think really happened, there’s no denying you go out of the film with a lot more sympathy for Tonya. As I read in one review, when you see the real footage of Tonya on ice just before the credits, you sure look at it in a new light. Olympic-wise? They sure recreate Lillehammer 94 well. Not the exact look, when you compare it to the real footage, but pretty damn close. A little bit of Albertville in there as well, but I can’t remember the origina from 92 well enough to comment on that. One thing they got glaringly wrong (from an Oly-nerd standpoint) was her coach telling her, AFTER Albertville, that the IOC had only “just” decided that the next winter games would be held only two years hence. And Margo Robbie did I (almost) all her own skating in it. Pretty remarkable! Her performance is great - happy to see her get an Oscar nomination. Allison Janney as the mum is the real scene-stealer, though. Anyone ese see it yet (I know Puppy has)?
