The Runaways is a biographical film about the 1970s all-girl rock band of the same name. The film is based the screenplay on the book Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway by the band’s original lead vocalist Cherie Currie. The film depicts the formation of the band and focuses on the relationship between Currie and Jett until Currie’s departure from the band.

Yes, Dakota Fanning is back with her unbelievable performance. Even I never like Kristen Stewart’s performance, together with Dakota Fanning they can pull it off convincingly. The music is great, the cinematography is brilliant.
