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, 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.
