For years, Bliss Cavendar (Academy Award nominee Ellen Page) has been dreaming of escaping her tiny, truck-stop of a town Bodeen, Texas. Unfortunately her devoted, beauty pageant obsessed mother (Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden) is convinced that Bliss can only succeed in life if she wins the crown at the local Miss Blue Bonnet Pageant, but the awkward outsider knows there’s something bigger and better out there. When Bliss sneaks off to the big city of Austin with her best friend Pash (Alia Shawkat) she discovers a world unlike anything she could ever imagine: roller derby, with its girl-power-meets-punk-rock spirit and its liberating celebration of wild individuality.

Inspired by the likes of Maggie Mayhem (Kristen Wiig), Bliss secretly tries out for a spot on the Hurl Scouts, a rag-tag team of scrappy underdogs. Soon she’s trading in her gowns and crowns for skirts, skates and scrapes becoming her alter ego, Babe Ruthless. Leading a precarious double life, Bliss may be a waitress at Bodeen’s Oink Joint by day, but by night, she’s becoming the fastest thing on eight wheels. Now she’s doing things she never dreamed of - fearlessly facing off with bad-ass rivals like Iron Maven (Academy Award nominee Juliette Lewis) and falling for a boy in a band (singer/songwriter Landon Pigg) - while trying to be a heroine to her new friends and team-mates. But when her secret gets out, Bliss will face her toughest fight yet: to take control of the future... on her own terms.

Rounding out a dynamic ensemble cast, WHIP IT also stars Jimmy Fallon, Eve, Zoë Bell, Ari Graynor, Eulala Scheel, Andrew Wilson, Carlo Alban and Daniel Stern. The film marks the feature film directorial debut of Drew Barrymore, who also stars as the feisty Hurl Scout, Smashley Simpson. The film is produced by two-time Academy Award-nominee Barry Mendel along with Barrymore from a screenplay by Shauna Cross, author of the semi-autobiographical novel from which WHIP IT is adapted. The film is executive produced by Peter Douglas, Nancy Juvonen, Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith, Nathan Kahane, Joe Drake and Chris Miller. Nicole Brown, Kelli Konop, Jason Lust and Karyn McCarthy serve as co-producers.

In a sharp, gritty yet poignant role, Ellen Page stars as Bliss Cavendar, whose sudden encounter with roller derby gives way to a rough-hewn, bruise-filled dream that will collide with her mother’s (Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden) honest hopes for a more gilded future.

Setting in motion the story’s sincere but defiantly bold tone - one in keeping with roller derby’s mix of high humour and true grit - is Drew Barrymore, who makes her directorial debut. Barrymore could not resist any of the multicoloured strands of WHIP IT - not its dashing free spirit, not its candid depiction of family conflicts, not its sweet moments of friendship and romance, and definitely not the backdrop of one of the edgiest, most empowering, underground sports in America - so she put them all in the mix to whip up a comedy-drama full of energy, humour and yearning.

Says Barrymore: “This film is really personal and important to me because it’s about a girl finding out who she is, going after what she believes in and bringing out the best in herself. It’s set against the world of roller derby, which is about grit and toughness, but there’s also this great wink and celebration and fun to it. It’s feminine on its own terms, it’s about power without anger and it’s exhibitionism that entertains. It’s a world where you get to be your own hero and find your own tribe.”
