I am highly recommending that you see Whip It with Ellen Page, Juliette Lewis and Drew Barrymore - who also directed the movie. Page plays Bliss Cavendar. Marcia Gay Harden plays her mother, a former beauty queen, who wants her daughter to succeed in that arena. Bliss finds that her heart belongs to a different arena. She lies about her age and tries out for a roller-derby team and makes it. Well...you know momma won't like that! Shauna Cross, who wrote the script, used to be a roller-derby star. It was a really good movie. See it...See it now!
MK out...but will return with more.
