Overview

The story of the groundbreaking '70s female rock group the Runaways is recounted in this River Road Entertainment production focusing on the duo of guitarist/vocalist Joan Jett (portrayed by Twilight's Kristen Stewart) and lead vocalist/keyboardist Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) as they navigate a rocky road of touring and record label woes under the malevolent eye of abusive manager Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon) during their teen years. Acclaimed video artist Floria Sigismondi directs from her own script, with Scout Taylor-Compton co-starring as guitarist Lita Ford.

Wow what a break out role for Kristen Stewart. She is my absolute favorite actress. So let the fact that she is filming the Twilight Saga slip your mind. If you're a fan or Kristen, you definitely must see this movie. If you're skeptical as to whether or not she is a good actress, you MUST see this movie. She is Joan Jett. Her performance as Joan is spot on and made me proud sitting in the theater. Dakota is an amazing Cherie and the rest of the cast pulled of the rest of the members of The Runaways. They all did a fantastic job. I pull my hat off to Floria Sigismondi. This was her first movie she had ever directed and she did a wonderful job. My only problem with this film is that it felt rushed. But I think that is expected because they are only scraping the surface of who The Runaways are. They never delve too deep into their background with everything that happened. Based on Cherie Currie's novel "Neon Angel". See the film and read the book!

This movie was a good insight into the brief stint of the notorious Runaways...their rapid rise to stardom and quick falling out, before Joan Jett's eventual solo career. The Runaways manager sure was somethin else...crazy guy. Kinda out there. I had always liked the music of both The Runaways and Joan Jett, and it was interesting to see the story behind everything. If you like the music or even just a good drama, give this movie a watch.
