Whip It

Whip It is the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore. She is taking her turn behind the camera although she still plays a role in the movie and earned herself a nomination for the Bronze Horse at the Stockholm Film Festival.

Whip It stars Juno’s Ellen Page, as well as many big female characters such as Juliette Lewis, Eve, Marcia Gay Harden, Kristen Wiig (who you can also see in Date Night and How To Train Your Dragon, which are both in the cinemas at the moment) and Zoe Bell, who is usually known for her stunts and also stars Jimmy Fallon. The film is based on a novel by Shauna Gross, ‘Derby Girl’, and has been adapted for the big screen as Whip It.

Whip It! Premiere

The film tells the story of the bored and confused Bliss, who is pushed into beauty pageants until she realises her passion for roller derby. She tries out for a local team in Austin, Texas, who are very happy to come second (out of two teams) when they play. By learning that they must be ruthless to win a game, Bliss also learns she must do the same in life. Teaching us all to ‘Be Our Own Heroes’!

Critics response has been positive to Whip It’s infectious energy. It overcomes the clichés and is set to be thoroughly enjoyable, even for the boys.

Whip It is released on 7th April!
