Whip It!

I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE.

I love Ellen Page. If they made a movie that consisted entirely of her eating soup and talking to a cat, I’d see it. And I’d love it. I’m weird, moving on. 

Drew Barrymore directed, and joining Ellen are Marcia Gay Harden, Kristen Wiig and Alia Shawkat (Maeby from Arrested Development!) 

Totally girl-centric (not just that but super-talented girls, as well) and looks like it paints these girls as passionate and powerful. I’m psyched! 

 

Thanks to Appetite for Equal Rights for the heads up!

    I know, RIGHT? I heard about this movie today from feministing and posted the trailer on my blog immediately. I love Ellen Page, and I can’t wait for this movie!

    This is based off of the book Derby Girl by Shauna Cross. Read the book before you see the movie! It’s a good read :]

    YES! I read an interview with Alia Shawkat talking about this movie, it looks so good. Can’t wait.

    This movie looks great! Not only is it completely made by women (which we should support because it’s so rare), it looks like it is all about female empowerment and doing what you love.
