Film Review: The Runaways starring Kristen Stewart

 
Now if I’m perfectly honest, rock bands from the 70s aren’t really my thing, so I wasn’t too keen on watching this movie. I was intrigued by the fact that I had read several articles and interviews regarding the complications of filming some ‘inapproprirate’ scenes. However, much to my suprise I gained much knowledge of the music industry, the effects of teenage drug use and, of course, the formation of the iconic, first all-girl rock band, The Runaways. Apart from the fact that she never smiles, I really like Kristen Stewart. She has acted in such a huge variety of movies and she has played the part brilliantly in each. In The Runaways, Stewart plays Joan Jett, the founder of the band, or at least the concept of an all-girl rock band. It is quite inspiring how she managed to make this dream come true in a time when rock music was entirely male-dominated. Dakota Fanning does a great job of portrayed Cherie Currie and we see the transformation of a seemingly innocent girl at the beginning to a drug-addicted, teenage, rockstar who wears clothes that are far too revealing. I’d definitely recommend this to teenagers, anybody interested in the music industry and fans of rock.

    I'm glad you like the post guys 😀

    I love your blog Cheryl, but I'm a bit confused about how to follow it.. but i subscribed to your feed if that's what you meant…

    lol marbella15 I didn't mean to sound rude or anything with the 'stealing' of UK's shows, but I just think US TV is amazing as it is, why borrow ideas from the UK?

    Yes, twilight actresses do seem to do very well for themselves.. and it's so great that they can act in so many different movie genres…
