A Good Production
19 July 2006 | by ReelCheeseSee all my reviews

It may just be a tabloid-style movie of the week, but "Tonya & Nancy: The Inside Story" is a pretty darn good one. This reasonably unbiased NBC production tells the intriguing story of figure skater Tonya Harding's alleged involvement in a conspiracy to injure rival Nancy Kerrigan prior to the 1994 Winter Olympics. The eventual knee clubbing of the wholesome Kerrigan remains one of the most sensational stories in sport history. Through some fine acting (including a perfectly cast Heather Langenkamp as Kerrigan) and interesting storytelling, we get an inside look at the events and purported events leading up to the deed. If this story captivated your interest when it occurred, this film should definitely please.
