QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: An Olympic hopeful, abused most of her life, tries to return to the Olympics, only to have her ex-husband and his buddy throw a monkey wrench into her plans.
PLOT:
Years after an incident before the 1994 Winter Olympic Games became a sensational news story known around the world, a number of pivotal figures in that are interviewed for their take regarding their involvement in the attack on figure skater Nancy Kerrigan (CAITLIN CARVER).

Of course, that directly involves skating rival Tonya Harding (MARGOT ROBBIE) who grew up with a demanding and physically abusive mother in LaVona Golden (ALLISON JANNEY) with whom she's now mostly estranged from as a young adult.

But just like she contended with abuse as a child, she continued to experience that at the hands of her boyfriend, Jeff Gillooly (SEBASTIAN STAN), who eventually became her husband in a tormented marriage.

And things then got worse when he and his would-be bodyguard pal, Shawn (PAUL WALTER HAUSER), decided to help out Tonya's chances of going for the gold by eliminating her rival. As their look-back perspectives intertwine, we come to see what formed Tonya into the person she was at the height of her success, as well as what happened following the attack.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those interested in the real-life story might be interested as might anyone who's a fan of someone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For pervasive language, violence, and some sexual content/nudity.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
