  • Tonya Harding is having a pop culture moment, and Sufjan Stevens is here for it

Robbie appeared starstruck after chatting and posing for photos with Harding, 47, who was famously implicated in a plot led by ex-husband Jeff Gillooly to injure rival skater Nancy Kerrigan so that she would not be able to compete in the 1994 Winter Olympics.

'I just wanted to give her a hug, because back when we first heard about this story we were told what to think about her and we were told she was a villain.

Before I, Tonya hits Los Angeles and NY theaters tomorrow, take a look at what the critics have to say about the film!

In director Craig Gillespie's darkly hilarious tragicomedy (***½ out of four; rated R; in theaters Friday New York and Los Angeles, expands through January), Margot Robbie gloriously portrays every aspect of disgraced skating wunderkind Tonya Harding - good, bad and ugly - in the years before and after "The Incident".

Dark comedy "I, Tonya", opening in USA movie theaters on Friday, is based on the life of Harding (played by Margot Robbie) and the infamous 1994 attack on her Olympic rival Nancy Kerrigan. She went on to win a silver medal at the Olympics the following month.

Owen Gleiberman, Variety: "I, TONYA, a riff on the Tonya Harding saga starring Margot Robiie as the infamous figure skater the whole world decided it loved to hate, is a fresh, chancy and wickedly enjoyable movie".

"I definitely had a lot more compassion for Tonya Harding watching this movie". (You know the one, where rival Nancy Kerrigan's knee was bashed at a practice session by a mystery assailant two days before the Olympic trials.) The sneakily insightful movie also explores the beginnings of tabloid culture, tackles domestic abuse head on, and challenges the very definition of truth.

Margot Robbie and Tonya Harding on the red carpet.

Margot Robbie at the L.A. premiere of "I, Tonya" wearing a Versace dress and Jimmy Choo shoes. In case there was any DOUBT (some might say "Who knew?"), she's a major actress. "But nobody can pull focus from Robbie, an intense actress finally sinking her teeth into a meaty role as a woman who became, in her own wry acknowledgment, nothing more than a punch line".

Co-star Allison Janney, who plays Harding's mother in the film, said: "Wow, this is incredible". But the main takeaway is a believable one: "that Harding, just 23 at the time, deserved better than yet another beat-down meted out by a much-entertained public".
