The Runaways 2010


description written by member Zara:

Dakota Fanning stars in this musical biopic as Cherie Currie, lead singer of the 1970s all-girl rock group the Runaways, whose meteoric rise up the charts was saturated with drugs and other excesses of that era. Though the Runaways started out as a novelty act, the rock 'n' roll chops of Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart), Lita Ford (Scout Taylor-Compton) and the other girls lifted the group to international stardom. Floria Sigismondi directs.

The Runaways Movie Review by Ben (10/22/2010)

The Runaways Movie Review by Suzanne (4/24/2010)

In 1975 Teenagers Joan Jett and Sandy West with the help of producer Kim Fowley form the Punk / Glam rock band Runaways. Three other girls Jackie Fox, Lita Ford and Cherie Curry join the band and the rest is jailbait history.

The Runaways Movie Review by Jarrod (3/29/2010)
