I’m rooting for Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut “Whip It” for several reasons. First, talented female directors are in short supply so I’m hoping Barrymore is about to join their ranks. Second, I think it’s got a great cast and now that Ellen Page had her breakthrough with “Juno”, she needs to show the mainstream (many of whom, sadly, did not see “Hard Candy”) that she’s not just a one-hit wonder but that she’s a serious actress who’s here to stay. Third, it shows that Daniel Stern is still alive, so that’s nice. And finally, I’ve never seen a film which features female roller derby so that will be cool.
Hit the jump to check out the new trailer “Whip It” hits theatres on October 9th.
