Periodically, the Warner Library in Tarrytown, NY offers free film viewings. This Thursday, March 31 there will be a showing of Whip It, one the best films of 2009 in my opinion, and although it’s listed under the “Teen” section of the programs that the library offers I think this film can be healthily viewed by adults, too. Ellen Page gives a vivid performance of teenage angst and what it feels like to do what you need to do to be happy no matter what everyone around you says.

Based on the novel by Shauna Cross (which can be read for free, it is a library after all), Drew Barrymore does a wonderful job of bringing this story to the screen with the help of some hard-hitting, name-taking ladies onscreen right now: Kristin Wiig, Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Lewis, Eve, and Zoe Bell just to name a few.

So if you’re in the mood for some pretty ladies on wheels, come down to Tarrytown and watch this film!
