Spinning the Truth on Film: director Craig Gillespie discusses I, Tonya

In preparation for her performance in I, Tonya as Tonya Harding, Margot Robbie, best known until now for The Wolf of Wall Street, trained hard for four months to skate convincingly before the camera. It nonetheless required an enormous effort by the film’s visual effects team to create those remarkable sequences in which Robbie appears to perform skating moves that only Harding could do.

This and other issues about the making and meaning of I, Tonya are covered in this interview with director/producer Craig Gillespie.
