Long before Ellen Page and Juliette Lewis (love her) strapped skates on their pedicured piggies, there were "Unholy Rollers."
The Brattle Theatre is showing this gritty 1972 film about a frustrated woman who quits her job at the cat food factory to become a roller derby queen. The flick's tag line? "A locker room look at the toughest broads in the world!" Pow!
See "Rollers" Jan. 22 at 5:15 or 9:30 p.m. . The Brattle is also showing "Whip It" at 7:15 p.m., so you can make it a double feature. A $9.75 ticket gets you into both shows. It's going to be wheel, man.
