Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning star in this music-fueled, coming of age story of the groundbreaking, all girl, teenage rock band of the 1970s—The Runaways.
Los Angeles 1975. Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning), two teenage valley girls with punk in their blood, meet and become the heart and soul of the seminal all girl band, The Runaways. Under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon), the group evolves 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 heart, while Cheri, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten.
