The Runaways Review

If you love Rock N’ roll you will love this movie!  After reading Cherie Currie’s book, Neon Angel, we were all very excited to hear it was being made into a movie.  Even though I was anxious to see how Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning would do portraying the roles of Joan Jett and Cherrie Currie. A hard role to see Dakota Fanning play expressing the struggles with drugs, sexuallity and love for rock n’ roll that of a distressed volatile woman, but it was a role Dakota conquered well.

The same with Kristen Stewart. You literally watch her transform from a love-struck-with-a vampire school girl into this angry rocker chick, from her hair to her attitude.

The only thing I enjoyed more than the movie, was the soundtrack which includes punk rock icons like Iggy and The Stooges, The Sex Pistols, Suzi Quatro, and The Runaways themselves.
