The Runaways: DVD Review
Released by Sony Home Entertainment
Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning leave their Twilight images behind
in this tale of hedonism, hard rocking and harmonies.
Set in the 70s it's the true life coming of age tale of Joan Jett and Cherie
Currie, how their rock and roll lives collided and they blazed the trail for
women in rawk music.
But while Jett was always determined to be a rock star, Currie was more
saddled with the problems of family life which seem to cause conflict within her
- and unleash her inner demons.
This film belongs
to Fanning as drug addled Currie and Michael Shannon as the maestro Kim Fowley
who sees the potential of the female band-it's their relationship with everyone
else which eclipses most of the film itself.
and spunky, The Runaways is a hedonistic trip, fizzing with energy and humanity.
Extras: Commentary with Joan
Jett, KStew and Dakota Fanning; featurette - nice touch on the commentary to
keep the interest going. Blu ray offers exactly the same.
