Margot Robbie earns high marks in 'I, Tonya'

Margot Robbie earns high marks in 'I, Tonya'

Actress Allison Janney poses on her star after it was unveiled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, California US, October 17, 2016. Elevated by Margot Robbie and Allison Janney's shimmering performances, this entertaining account of those odd events earns the sort of high marks for creative interpretation that its protagonist complained eluded her. Once the story moves into the meat of the action, though - from Tonya moving in with Jeff to the insanity that follows - she paints a layered and unexpectedly sympathetic portrait as the most seemingly trustworthy of the film's alternating narrators. Meanwhile, host Ellen DeGeneres also gave her rave reviews, telling Janney that she is sure to get nominated for an Oscar.

There's a surprising depth to "I, Tonya", too, as the sheer resilience of Harding stirs. I had a coach, I worked really hard and I trained early in the morning and after school and I was obsessed with it.

Man wanted for burglary of properties rented by singer R. Kelly
Kelly's housekeeper called the police to say she found the house emptied of belongings when she came to clean the home. Completely wiped clean, almost everything was taken including furniture, electronics and other property, TMZ reports .

While Robbie and screenwriter Steven Rogers met with Harding and Gillooly, Janney had little to go on to play LaVona except for a 1980s student documentary. She sort of brushed it off in a way that made me think "Wow". As Harding, Robbie unleashes an extra dimension to her acting talents, fearlessly carrying the film while dancing between comedy and drama, and on at least two occasions she will leave you dazzled with the emotion she conveys. "And I think people come away with a lot more compassion for her".
