New Roller Derby Movie - Whip It!

Last week saw the release of Drew Barrymore's directorial debut - Whip It! - a comedy about the world of US Roller Derby starring Juno's Ellen Page.  The film is based on Shauna Cross's novel Derby Girl.

The premise behind the film is that a misfit by the name of Bliss (Page) is being constantly pressured by her mother to enter beauty pageants.  Instead she joins a roller derby league and then lies to her mother about what she is doing.  The main theme of the film is to 'Be Your Own Hero'.

Whip It has received positive responses so far in the US, but as of yet, no UK release date has been announced.  The Round-Up Bout will keep you posted, but for now, here's a trailer to keep you going! ....
