Thank you to everyone who came to our sold out 10th-anniversary screening of Whip It – 4th November at the Prince Charles Cinema!
In what might be our most aweseome move yet, we were treated to a video intro from none other that Eve who riffed on her most memorable moments from shooting the film. We also had special edition zines as designed by Steph. Got one? Keep it safe…it’s now a collector’s item!
Ellen Page plays Bliss, a misfit living in small-town Texas. Desperate to get away from beauty pageant life, she secretly joins local raucous roller derby team The Hurl Scouts.
Directed by Drew Barrymore and boasting an absolutely killer cast, including Alia Shawkat, Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis, Eve and legendary stuntwoman Zoe Bell, Whip It is a journey of self-discovery, friendship, and lots and lots of bruises.
If you were desperate to join a contact sport at school but never got the chance, are a roller derby girl yourself, or just want a chance to see Ellen Page tear up the track on the big screen, then Whip It is the film for you!
