Fitting in is Overrated. Fabulous film. Margot Robbie and A,ison Janney are both superb. I remember this story being all over the news in 1992. The skating scenes are impressive and they can't all have been cgi added?! This really got me thinking and actually regardless of knowing the outcome before I watched it I was engrossed and in my head fighting for her.
Really enjoyed this and the documentary style was good and suited the film.
8/10.

This wasn't a movie I wanted to see as had wrong idea about it. Wasn't until people started talking about it I eventually seen it and really enjoyed it.

Captured me from start to finish and Tonga Harding's life story your like wow start feeling for her. I like a film with good music in background also makes certain scenes and this had great background music also.

I really enjoyed this although felt the "characters" were all a bit cartoonish and that the whole movie was more of a comedy than it should be, given that it is "based" on a true story.
Definitely entertaining though.
I loved Cruella De Harding, Tonya's mum. Now who does she remind me of....?

Better than expected.

very good though a little light hearted over some serious topics. Its probably overly candid about all of the other major characters involved, so it would not surprise me if Harding isnt accurately portrayed either.

Scorcese on steroids. 4 stars

Absolutely amazing. Margot really shines and 100% deserves her Oscar nomination. Beautifully directed.

I feel like I'm in the minority but i wasn't a fan of this film really. Don't get me wrong Margot Robbie was AMAZING in it and there were some quite funny bits but i felt the actual story was drawn out to the point where i was almost bored. The CGI for a lot of the skating also wasn't great, all i could think about during these scenes was Will Ferrall and Jon Heder in Blades of Glory. I'd give it a 6/10, it isn't a film I'll be rushing to tell people about.

I was really impressed by this film. The approach taken of never quite being sure what was true and what was phoney, with talking to the camera at several moments with asides such as “this never happened “ was excellent. Performances uniformly top-notch. And then the end sequences showing just how truthful it had been all along...ruined only by the ignorant standing, putting coats on, chattering non film fans in front who clearly can’t be arsed to sit still for a few minutes and give credit to the hundreds of people involved in entertaining them for the past 90+ minutes!! A pet gripe at every single film we see. 9/10

I was very impressed with this film. I love truss stories and some of the events in the film were so outrageous you know they had to be true.

Margot Robbie played the central character perfectly, and the mother - both hilarious and heartbreaking.

I think the mother and daughter relationship between them was the most fascinating part of the film.

A fancinating watch and definitely deserving of all the award nominations.

I enjoyed this movie, Margot, Allison and Sebastian did a great job in this movie. I didn't know about Tonya Harding before and it was really interesting to watch and figure out what is really the true account.
