The Marquee Cinema, Union South
USA | 119 min | R | DCP | Dir. Craig Gillespie "Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan." (Official Site) "I, Tonya takes greater risks with the biopic genre than any other in recent memory, and it's remarkable how much of it lands upright. It's the triple axel of based-on-true-story movies." - Andrew Lapin (NPR) All free events sponsored by WUD Film Committee are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
