I, Tonya

I, Tonya ★★★½

66/100 (B)

Odd experience watching this, as I actively hated most of the first half before being strongly won round during the second. Most of that is down to Margot Robbie's pitch perfect, upsetting performance as a damaged woman constantly let down by all sides.

Not a fan of the initial 'lighthearted domestic abuse' of the first half, which feels like all the worst moments of The Wolf of Wall Street strung together, but everything from the attack onwards is golden, and Allison Janney is great fun if a little OTT. A mixed bag then, but occasionally hints at greatness.
