She had wheels on her feet

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.
