Above The Line presents:Screening 12. I, Tonya & Goodfellas For our twelfth screening we’ll be shining a light on the similar autobiographical narrative structures and signifiers within Craig Gillespie’s 2018 award season highlight, I, Tonya and Martin Scorcese’s gangster epic, Goodfellas. 17.30pm: I, Tonya (2018)(Director: Craig Gillespie)(Cast: Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, Nancy Kerrigan) Tonya Harding (Robbie) secures her place amongst the ranks at the U.S Figure Skating Championships. Told through the eyes of the woman herself and the people around her, the (almost) true story explores her dramatic downfall and the contradicting viewpoints from those involved in the chaos.20.00pm: Goodfellas (1990)(Director: Martin Scorsese)(Cast: Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci)Martin Scorcese’s crime epic is ingrained in the culture of gangster cinema. Goodfellas tells the true story of Henry Hill (Liotta), a man who rises through the ranks in the mob and enjoys all the luxuries it gives him. Oblivious to the consequences of the power he gains, his drug addiction and mistakes swiftly unravel his climb to the top. FREE ENTRY
