Movie rec: Whip It

I dunno how we missed this when it was released, but we watched it tonight and thought it fine. It's a sports movie for people who don't like sports (hey, roller derby!) and a coming of age movie for, well, people who like coming of age stories, I guess. IMDB gives it 6.9, but Rotten Tomatoes' tomatometer, which tends to be more in line with my taste, gives it 84%. Ellen Page gave a fine performance, and Drew Barrymore's direction served a script with a number of funny lines.
