1994 FS Scandal Biopic
« on: October 17, 2017, 12:45:41 PM »
In December 2017, a biopic will be released called Tonya, exploring the 1994 figure skating scandal.  No big surprise - this story is revisited every year around Worlds or the Olympics. 

My DH thinks foam crowbars should be sold at all FS events because he's snarky like that.  I'm so over the story and its aftermath, but here's an interesting tidbit:  Tonya Harding is apparently getting back in shape (and even skating) for the premiere.

I've read a couple of comments from judges who admired Tonya and thought the punishment was too severe.

Trailer for the movie just got released.  Looks interesting.  Apparently Margot Robbie is getting Oscar buzz.

I just saw the trailer on Variety. It looks pretty good. Is it bad of me that I remember the costumes?
