Though she’s better known as an actress, Drew Barrymore made her directorial debut with 2009’s Whip It, starring Ellen Page as a teenager who joins a roller derby team. While I wouldn’t say it demonstrated a distinctive directorial style, Whip It was a solid first effort. I found the film to be genuine, funny and sweet, with strong performances by Page and co-stars Kristen Wiig, Marcia Gay Harden and Alia Shakwat.
Now, Barrymore’s looking to step up to the director’s chair a second time with How to Be Single, a romantic comedy detailing the entanglements of a group of New Yorkers over the course of a decade. Read more after the jump.
