Youth springs eternal for Ellen Page. Oscar nominated for her role as a pregnant 16-year-old in the raucous comedy Juno, the 23-year-old Canadian actress has forged a career playing dysfunctional and pithy teenagers. There are more growing pains in Whip It, the auspicious directorial debut of Drew Barrymore based on the novel Derby Girl by Shauna Cross.
