Whip It! USA 2009 – 111min.
With an inattentive dad who watches football all day with a beer in his hand, a traditionalist mother and a little sister whom she is forced to help in beauty pageants, Bliss has yet to find her niche, no thanks either to her boring job as a waitress in her hometown of Bodeen, Texas. But things change when she discovers a roller derby league in nearby Austin. Lying to her parents, who are completely against this violent underground sport practiced by punk feminists who go by names like Eva Destruction, Bloody Holly, Iron Maven and Smashly Simpson, and the others in the league (the 17-year-old claims to be 21, the age of consent for roller derby), the shy but rebellious Bliss soon realizes her newfound passion gives her self-confidence. While participating in events, she also falls for the guitarist of a local band...
