WHIP IT Behind the Scenes Featurette

Here is a little behind the scenes featurette for Drew Barrymore's new film about roller derby girls, Whip It. Barrymore talks about the film, it's story, and what it means to her.

Ellen Page stars in the movie as Bliss Cavenar, an indie-rock loving misfit stuck in the tiny town of Bodeen, Texas. Her pageant-addicted mother expects her to compete for the coveted Miss Blue Bonnet crown, but Bliss would rather feast on roaches than be subjected to such rhinestone tyranny. Bliss’ escape? Take up Roller Derby. When she discovers a league in nearby Austin, Bliss embarks on an epic journey full of hilarious tattooed girls, delicious boys in bands, and a few not-so-awesome realities even the most bad-assed derby chick has to learn. The name of the team is called Hurl Scouts. The movie also stars Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore, Macia Gay Harden, Jimmy Fallon, Eve, and Juliette Lewis.

The movie looks like it could be a lot of fun. It got that indie film charm to it that a lot of people are getting into these days.
