Anche la presentazione al Festival di Roma è andata benissimo. E per Margot Robbie, sapientemente imbruttita e vestita, già si parla di nominations agli Oscar.
Il film ricostruisce il caso scioccante che coinvolse, nel 1994, due pattinatrici, l’esperta Tonya Harding e la giovane promessa Nancy Kerrigan.
Tonya Harding was the first American woman to achieve figure skating’s holy grail move, completing a triple axel in competition in 1991. But success on the ice was not always matched with happiness in her personal life. She grew up constantly at odds with her abusive mother and fought for everything she had. Though an accomplished technical skater, pleasing the judges proved tougher and she was criticized for her lack of artistry and unconventional “trailer park” beauty. When she met Jeff Gillooly, he provided a long-awaited escape from her mother, an encouraging voice in her corner, and fatefully, connections to a sleazy underworld.
Il film uscirà negli USA l’8 dicembre.
