“Whip It” marks the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore and it stars Academy Award nominee Ellen Page (“Juno”), Academy Award Winner Marcia Gay Harden (“Pollock”), Kristen Wiig (“SNL”), and Juliette Lewis (“The Other Sister”).
A small town beauty pageant contestant (Page) trades in her crown for skates and joins a roller derby team.
“Be your own hero” is the movie’s motto and this movie is full of heart, guts, and laughs. I wouldn’t label “Whip It” as just your ordinary chick-flick, I think it is a film that anyone can relate to. It’s about self discovery, and following your dreams! Plus, the action sequences will have you cheering for more!
