Part of: Women in Sport Film Season, Storyhouse Women - a weekend festival

Directed by Drew Barrymore 
Starring Elliot Page, Drew Barrymore, Kristen Wiig, Sarah Habel, Shannon Eagen. 

Inspired by Storyhouse Women, a weekend celebrating women and girls.  

Young Programmers have chosen to celebrate and present films that explore women in sports, the challenges of working in a male-dominated industry and the obstacles that women face when competing in sports.  

Whip It, the 2009 cult classic centres around 17-year-old indie-rock girl Bliss who is made to compete in pageants by her mother. Hope of escape comes in the form of a roller-derby that Bliss wants to compete in. She begins to rebel against her mother’s wishes for her future and achieve her own dreams.
