Whip It (Drew Barrymore, 2009)

Whip It, the heart-warming story of a young woman who refuses to conform to the world of American beauty pageants, and finds her fab femmo self by joining a radical roller-derby team. Starring Ellen Page, the film is Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut and, if ever there was a feel-good feminist film with a great message — one that people of all kinds and ages can enjoy — then this is it. As well as suiting older kids, Whip It is the perfect cure for that post-Halloween hang-over, and the kind of film that mams and dads will enjoy as much as their teens.
