Includes a conversation with director Craig Gillespie and writer Steven Rogers

Who would take a real-life incident that sounded as much like a slapstick caper as a mean-spirited act of revenge, and make a movie of it starring Harley Quinn with the director of Lars and the Real Girl? The people behind the based-on-a-true-story I, Tonya, which brings Margot Robbie into the mix playing Tonya Harding, the tough-as-a-blade-sharpener ice skating competitor who saw a chance to knee-cap her main rival, Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver) and took it. Sebastian Stan acts as Jeff Gilooly, Harding’s knuckle-dragging ex-husband and Alison Janney is Harding’s growling Mama Bear, LaVona. Director Craig Gillespie keeps a tone best described as farcical melodrama, a mood that nods but doesn’t wink.
