The Runaways, 2010 – ★

Going in to this film I knew nothing about Joan Jett, the Runaways or the impact of their music. I’m still none the wiser.

It seems to me there was such great potential for this film:
– The story of The Runaways, a female rock group determined to succeed in a man’s world.
– A couple of great characters to explore and develop in Joan Jett and Cherie Curry.
– A couple of fine young actresses looking for THAT role to really break out of teen-movie/rom com hell.

Unfortunately those opportunities weren’t taken.
