Whip It (2009)
Aside from the fact that Bliss is sort of a more introverted and less pregnant version of Juno from Juno, this movie is totally fun. I've never seen roller derby in real life, but if it's anything like what it looks like in this, I'm so going to the next game! Ellen Page is a great actress and here she was surrounded by several older women who managed to not outshine her and also stand as their own parts of the whole. The whole, of course, being the Hurl Scouts. Any part of the movie not related to roller derby is just so-so, but the derby shots are enough to make the movie worth seeing.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
