The Margot Corner

The last couple of days have been extremely hectic for Margot (and us!), and there’s been so many updates here at the site that they’re spread across 3 pages. Margot has been everywhere at the film festival, and we know it might have been hard to keep up with everything she’s been up to. Therefore, we’ve put together this little summary of the festival – hopefully making it easier for everyone to read up on what Margot has been up to, now that it’s all collected in one place. The festival has blessed us with countless new photos, interviews, videos and articles, and we’ve attempted to pick out the best and most important parts of it for you here. We’ve learned so much about the upcoming ‘I, Tonya’ this weekend, and I’ve done my best at summarizing it for you.

After weeks of anticipation, The 2017 Toronto International Film Festival kicked off Thursday 7th of September! Margot was photographed arriving at the Toronto airport that night, confirming that she would be at the festival to promote her upcoming film ‘I, Tonya’. Some background information on the film, for those who’ve had trouble keeping up with all of Margot’s latest projects: the film is based on the real events surrounding the life of ice skater Tonya Harding. In 1994, she was implicated in the kneecapping of rival skater Nancy Kerrigan. The film’s IMDb page reads as follows – “Competitive ice skater Tonya Harding rises among the ranks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, but her future in the sport is thrown into doubt when her ex-husband intervenes.” The movie entered TIFF with a widely reported $6 million offer from CBS Films already on the table, with some rumors circulating that the company had already closed the sale. We learned early on during the festival that the film was without a distributor, and a major bidding war for it was expected.
