SATURDAY WHIP IT!
9.35PM, 9GO! ★★★
So what if Whip It! is really just Juno on roller skates, give or take an unplanned pregnancy? This feisty little coming-of-rage affair is much more fun than it has any right to be, courtesy of Ellen Page’s winning lead performance and the energised enthusiasm of director Drew Barrymore. The story takes place in and around Austin, Texas, where the long-forgotten sport of roller derby – popular for 15 minutes in the 1970s – has become the coolest thing in town.
