I, Tonya, an unconventional biopic about the unconventional, embattled yet iconic '90s figure skater, is based on "irony free, wildly contradictory and totally true" interviews with Tonya Harding and her one-time husband, Jeff Gillooly.

Tonya Harding has made headlines for years — first for her Olympic-level figure skating and then for her connection to an assault engineered by her ex-husband and others against her rival, Nancy Kerrigan.
