The Runaways

Being a huge fan of Joan Jett and her music, I was thrilled when I learned about this bio-pic and happy to see Kristen Stewart in something other than the Twilight films. The story centers around Stewart and Dakota Fanning as Jett and Cherie Currie and the formation and eventual break-up of a 70's all-girl, teenage, rock band. The music is great and Stewart's portrayal of Jett seems dead on while Fanning pulls out the sexy stops as the reluctant front-woman who gets caught up in a drug frenzy and implodes. Although I enjoyed the film thoroughly an older couple decided to leave the theater when Jett and Currie started making out. Hey it's rock-n-roll - what where you expecting?
