The Runaways

Directed by Floria Sigismondi

Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning), two rebellious teenagers from Southern California, become the frontwomen for the Runaways -- the now-legendary group that paved the way for future generations of female rockers. Under the Svengalilike influence of impresario Kim Fowley, the band becomes a huge success, with Joan as the band's hard-rocking heart, and Cherie as the sex kitten. However, the teens' stormy relationship threatens the band's future.

Interesting movie about the formation of early all female rock band with teenagers showing their early rise to success than breaking up as a band. I felt that the movie over concentrated on the drug usage and if you read about the band's history they actually were a success in multiple countries producing 5 albums. It would have a better movie if it gave a better chronology vs. somehow getting a studio album then breaking up. It also should have provided a summation of the other rock performers - what happened to them.
