The Runaways 2010 (Film Review)

Right, so I watched this movie today, and it was insightful and interesting. This film is based on the 1970’s all girl rock band of the same name and also off a memoir written – by the original lead vocalist Cherie Currie ”Neon Angel: A memoir of a Runaway.”

The film focuses on the formation of the band in 1975 and the relationships they had with one another, more significantly with Joan Jett and Cherie Currie before her departure from the group.

They were managed by their record producer also Kim Fowley.

Dakota Fanning portrayed Cherie Currie, and did a great job, seeing as the band was way before my time.

Kristen Stewart portrayed Joan Jett.

And Riley Keough portrayed Marie Currie (Cherie Currie’s twin)

We also see how determined, Cherie and Joan are which could be a factor why they were becoming so close. Joan met up with Kim and told him about her plans of starting an all girl group and he was interested, which sort of kick-started their careers.

The film, was good, and was also well received by critics.

I will give the film 5 out of 5 stars. 🙂

Watch this film, if you haven’t already!!

Yours Truly,
Lizzy ~
