Check out our cool new graffiti wall! I just recently saw Whip It directed by Drew Barrymore, and on top of it being great seeing another women director out there, it was a really great, feel-good movie.
After seeing it I though how well it really drove home the things that Girlamatic represents. Self-identity, good community, expressing yourself, and achievement. Also, the tag line “Be Your Own Hero” I thought was excellent and really played on through out the movie. The film didn’t pull any punches when it came to how to standing up for oneself, knowing when you’ve done wrong, and not putting up with crap from others, no matter how important to you they may seem.
It’s a good first flick for a new director, and I recommend it as a good way to kick off Fall movie season.
Even if you don’t see it stop by the wall, and contribute your art and stories! Muse on a life experience where someone inspired your to get out there. Or tell Drew Barrymore in an open letter what you thought of her directorial debut! Submit your Roller Derby Girl art! Dress up as a roller derby girl and take a picture!
