The Runaways

I can’t believe I missed this in the Cinema! OMG I am so renting it when it is out. I am such a sucker for a biopic, plus a biopic set in the 70’s and involving music. It has a really good cast including Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning.

Synopsis via Wiki:

The Runaways is a 2010 American musical/biographical drama film, based on the 1970s all-girl rock band of the same name. The film is written and directed by Floria Sigismondi,[2] with Joan Jett as one of the film’s executive producers, and stars Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie, Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett, Stella Maeve as Sandy West, Scout Taylor-Compton as Lita Ford, and Michael Shannon as Kim Fowley. Alia Shawkat plays the band’s bassist, a fictional character named Robin, created as a result of legal issues preventing the portrayal of bassist Jackie Fox.[3]
