In the new TIFF film I, Tonya, young and beautiful actress Margot Robbie portrays the titular character with an excessive but careful affectation, sympathy coupled with sincere contempt. Together with a career-best performance as her mother LaVona by Allison Janney, they deliver an overall wildly entertaining movie that has as much to teach us about ourselves as it does about its subject matter. If...
