Aroview: Drew Barrymore's directorial debut is a joyful tale of a small town outsider (Page) who empowers herself through the bruising sport of roller derby.
Genuinely exciting derby sequences, a cast of likeable goofballs (including uber-goofball Kiwi Zoe Bell), and a gentle sense of humour makes this a winner for a teen girl audience, and while the plot is overly-familiar, the message here is far more rare; namely to celebrate female friendship and camaraderie. Refreshingly affirming.

3 stars (Good Enough) This is kind of a dumb paint-by-number movie with no stakes that manages to skate (eh?) by with a plucky attitude and a spirit of growing up in a small crap town, only to find a scene that you can grow into. Soundtrack made me nostalgic as hell for 2006.~Pop&Coffee
