Based on the unbelievable, but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined...Read more

Smart and funny, ‘I, Tonya’ attempts some tricky moves, nails them all

★★★★

Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

“I, Tonya” is kitschy and smart and funny and insightful, and sometimes sobering. It reminds us that one of the many sad things about Tonya Harding’s life story is Harding never realized she didn’t have to be the villain, the late-night punch-line, the object of so much derision and mockery.

She could have been a real-life, female “Rocky” on ice. She could have been the People’s Champion.

Seriously.

Female skating legends were beautiful athletes who projected an almost regal air, from the reign of the glamorous Sonja Henie through Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Janet Lynn, Katarina Witt, et al. From demeanor to costume to makeup to choice of music to knowing how much to play to the crowd and the judges, there was a certain way of doing things.

And then along comes Tonya Harding, clomping onto the ice in clownish makeup and garish costumes hand-sewn by her mother, attacking her routine to the sounds of ZZ Top’s “Sleeping Bag” — and knocking the wind of out the skating world by becoming the first woman to nail a triple axel.

We just might have loved Tonya if the rogue’s gallery of abusers, miscreants, sycophants and clowns surrounding her had given her the least bit of encouragement to consider the possibility she was actually something quite special.

'Lady Bird' is one of the year's best films

• Four stars out of four •

Calvin Wilson / St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Lady Bird” is the solo directorial debut of Greta Gerwig, who is best known as a performer. Working from her own screenplay, Gerwig delivers a comedy-drama that transcends genre categories. It’s simply one of the best films of the year — an experience at once joyful, heartbreaking and hilarious.

And Lady Bird might finally be the role that earns Ronan (“Brooklyn”) an Oscar. As a young woman at odds with the world, and herself, she illuminates the film. Also worthy of Academy attention is Metcalf, who is sheer perfection as the quintessential stressed-out mom.

Lots of movies are set to be popping up in multiplexes, but few as wonderful as “Lady Bird.”
