It's 1975 and they're about to explode.
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.

Recently heard the track 'Cherry Bomb' on the radio and, as with so many things these days, was soon turning to google for answers. Within a few clicks of a mouse I was watching The Runaways. Never a massive fan of Joan Jett but have to say, this is really worth the watch. Ok, I've a soft spot girls with guitars but I promise ya, there's more to this film than sex, drugs and Rock n Roll. A current fave for me. Five years too late. But still a current fave.
