The Runaways sees Kristen Stewart leave behind the vampire franchise to take on the biopic picture.
She once again teams up with Dakota Fanning to tell the story of Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, the ground breaking teen rock band of the seventies.
The film follows two friends, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, as they rise from rebellions Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl band.
Joan and Cherie fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impressario Kim Fowley, played by Michael Shannon, who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits.
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, while her Bowie-Bardot, is the sex kitten.
Written and directed by Floria Sigismondi, the film chronicles Joan and Cherie’s tumultuous relationship on and off stage, as the band stars to break out.
Here are some images from the film:
