Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart may be sworn enemies in The Twilight Saga as Bella and Jane but the pair retunite for The Runaways as rockers Cherie Curry and Joan Jett.
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.
Take a look at a couple of clips from the movie:
