    My wife and I just watched the movie this weekend.

    What a brilliant movie, I really wish I had seen it at the theater. But still compelling. Very compelling.

    My wife and I disagree somewhat on Harding. My wife thinks she got shafted. I have a hard time getting past the evidence that she provided Nancy Kerrigan's practice location.

    My wife thought it was much like Hillbilly Elegy. It was hard to watch, especially the extensive domestic violence, but was a compelling movie.

    What bothers me, and I don't know if I am all wrong on this, IMO, it sounds like in the right circumstances and with the right character, Harding might have been the greatest skater ever. But when the stakes were highest, she found ways to self destruct. Disappointing is all I can think. I understand her resentment and at times can even share it (although I was from the right side of the tracks; it never felt like it). But rather than driving her, it seemed that she fell to petty levels and destroyed her chances. In the near final scene, she seems to decide to complain about her laces, perhaps thinking she would fail, so she had to manufacture an excuse. IMO, a champion would show up and nail it, or at least try. She wound up eighth, when she should have been number one.
