“Look, I’m sorry but when the CIA wants to learn new dirty tricks they observe figure skaters and their moms” – Kim Cattrall as “Tina Harwood” in the film Ice Princess

On January 6, 1994, figure skater Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver – Rules Don’t Apply) was attacked after a practice session prior to the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit.  Hopefully that isn’t a spoiler for anyone.  The film I, Tonya from director Craig Gillespie (The Finest Hours) tells the story of Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie – The Wolf of Wall Street), her husband Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan – Logan Lucky) and Jeff’s friend Shawn Eckhard (Paul Walter Hauser), before and after the attack on Nancy Kerrigan.
