I, Tonya

I, Tonya ★★★½

mixed feelings. the choice to play off a lot of the traumatic events in tonya's life (especially in the beginning, wrt the abuse and behavior of her parents) as humorous or lighthearted was....unsettling. i dont deny the absurdity of this whole story - it just felt a bit off that certain scenes are meant to be serious, and honestly kind of heartbreaking, but earlier in the movie they wanted us to laugh at near identical scenarios. idk.

overall it was very entertaining, i get the appeal, but the mean-spirited tone is hard to shake
