'Whip It' is a lesbian film, no question

While Ellen Page does not actually have sex with any women in Drew Barrymore's lesbian roller derby pic, our favorite little Canadian tomboy nonetheless does do the following (and this is just off the top of my head):
- Shares a bed with her girlfriend
- Wears army boots
- Indicates she can live without a boyfriend
- Flirts with Juliette Lewis (in a particularly electric moment)
- Longs to move to a city (a universally queer desire)
- Looks miserable in a dress
As you can see, the film clearly qualifies as a sapphic cinematic event.
