Movie Review: The Runaways
  |  

The Runaways
Directed by Floria Sigismondi
Starring Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, Stella Maeve, Scout Taylor-Compton, Michael Shannon
Rated R
Release date(s) January 24, 2010 (SFF)
March 19, 2010 (limited)
April 9, 2010 (wide)

The Runaways is a film is based on lead singer Cherie Currie’s memoir, Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway and it does a pretty good job of showing us what life was like for a teenage Runaway.

For those uninitiated (like myself before seeing the film) The Runaways were a 1970s rock band that broke musical taboos with their all-girl lineup. While I was watching the film I was thinking about how those same taboos, to a large extent, still exist in today’s musical world. In 2006, I remember Beyoncé Knowles making a huge fuss when she introduced her all-female tour band Suga Mama, which includes bassists, drummers, guitarists, horn players, keyboardists and percussionists. I would’ve thought 35 years would be enough time to break down those male barriers in pop/rock music, but I guess not.

Video: Cherie Currie Meets Joan Jett in ‘The Runaways’ + Teaser Poster
  |  @   |  

If you don’t know by now, The Runaways are one of my favorite bands of all time, so you can imagine that I’m quite psyched for the upcoming movie based on the 1970s all-girl rock band.

The Runaways, directed by Floria Sigismondi, stars Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart as a teenage Joan Jett with Dakata Fanning playing the band’s lead singer Cherie Currie. A new clip from The Runaways has been released (watch it here below) which shows how the young Currie first met the totally badass Jett along with Runaways mastermind, manager Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon).

Also debuting exclusively today over at MTV is the teaser poster for the film, which will be released in theaters on March 19, 2010. The Runaways will actually play first at the Sundance Film Festival this Sunday.

If you’re not sure what the teaser poster means, it’s a nod to the band’s most popular tune “Cherry Bomb.”
