Girl Power

My Dearest O and I made our semiannual trek to the movie theater for a showing of Whip It. What a great directorial debut by Drew Barrymore (who also played one of the best characters, although the part was wisely minor)! Although we've seen this kind of movie (underdog sports team coming-of-ager battling family expectations vs. personal desire), somehow it seemed fresh. The delightful Ellen Page and the rest of the young (and not so young) women sure know how to make roller derby look fun. (Do you suppose the Mad City Rollin' Dolls have tryouts anytime soon?)

Two thumbs up!
