A triple axel of a skating movie
18 September 2017 | by (Rochester, NY USA) – See all my reviews

If I could have voted online for the best movie that I saw at TIFF 2017 (the voting was limited to iPhone and Android users), it would have been for this film, which wound up second in the People's Choice award competition. Director Craig Gillespie has tackled a difficult subject brilliantly without removing the considerable number of warts from the main characters. This film should garner a considerable number of Oscar nominations, including best picture and director.

Margot Robbie should be a lock for Best Actress, completely burying her Australian background to deliver American white trash with complete credibility. The skating sequences are edited brilliantly – you really believe that it's her.

THE surest Oscar has to be Allison Janney as Tonya's acerbic, Swisher-chain-smoking mother LaVona Golden. It's what I call a "schizophrenia performance" – there's no way that anyone seeing JUNO and this film back-to-back would ever notice that the mothers in both films are played by the same actress. Robbie got the loudest applause when the actors were introduced before the film, but when they came out afterwards, Janney's applause was equivalent to hers.

The story sticks to facts and assigns most of the blame for the Kerrigan incident to Sean Eckhardt, played with spot-on obnoxiousness by Paul Walter Hauser. The rest goes to hubby-at-times Jeff Gillooly, played by Sebastian Stan. He handles the husband-to-a-celebrity role with a charm not seen since Eric Roberts in STAR 80.

The subject matter may cost the film at awards time, but it's still an excellent movie that you should definitely check out if you have any interest at all in the story.
