Drama Musical - Parents should note that while this film features youth appeal stars
Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning in the leads, this is a drug- and
sex-heavy rock-'n-roll biopic about the '70s teen rock group of the
title. Stewart's name comes first in the billing, but Fanning has
the showcase role. Drugs, sexual content, and rough language make
the film inappropriate for kids.

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. Floria Sigismondi brings The Runaways to the big screen in this story of a group of extraordinary young women as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary band that paved the way for future generations of girl musicians. 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 Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten.
