The post- Runaways DVD Review- Kristen Stewart Completely Rocked as Joan Jett

The Post: The Runaways

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning completely rock as Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, respectively, in this fantastic rock ’n roll biopic telling the story of 1970s all-girl rock band the Runaways.

As teenagers, the Runaways formed in LA under the questionable tutelage of music impresario Kim Fowley (played to creepy perfection by Michael Shannon) and gave the male-dominated industry a run for its money both in terms of kick-ass punk songs and drug-fuelled antics.

The film, while packed full of pitch-perfect 1970s costumes and hairdos, transcends mere nostalgia to tell an emotional coming-of-age story.

Floria Sigismondi’s background as a cutting-edge music video director realises its full creative potential here with this perfectly executed rock ’n’ roll blockbuster. Susan Morrell
