Synopsis Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning star as Joan Jett and Cherie Currie in the music-fueled coming of age story of the groundbreaking, all-girl rock band, THE RUNAWAYS . They fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon, Pearl Harbor), who turns the rebellious Southern California kids into a rock group with outrageous success. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself and so do its two leads: Joan is the band’s pure rock n’ roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten.

The Runawayshas a run time of approximately 105 minutes and is rated R for language, drug use and sexual content – all involving teens.
We were on holidays when the DVD arrived at my house so I asked my mom to watch The Runaways and tell me what she thought...
The movie is geared to teens and I thought it was pretty good, not great though. The acting is medium but the storyline kept me interested. The music was good, I enjoyed it even though it wasn't my style. It isn't a predictable film- I didn't know the ending until it happened.
