Whip It came out in the US last October and for some reason, we’ve had to wait for an extra 6 months to get the movie. It’s directed by Drew Barrymore…. yes that Drew Barrymore and stars Barrymore herself plus Ellen Page, Marcia Gay Harden, Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis, Eve, Jimmy Fallon and Daniel Stern.

It did pretty well in the US with an IMDb score of 7.3 from over 7000 votes so well done Ms. Barrymore! It’s now got a UK release date of 7th April and for some odd reason, I really want to see it….. is that bad?!

Synopsis: WHIP IT, the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore, stars Ellen Page (Juno) as Bliss, a rebellious Texas teen who throws in her small town beauty pageant crown for the rowdy world of roller derby. Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River, Pollock) plays Bliss’ disapproving mother, while Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live) and Juliette Lewis (Old School) play roller-derby stars. Also starring Eve, Jimmy Fallon, and Daniel Stern.
