Performers, Cast and Crew:
Box Office - 01/27/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "It's a natural born hit....What makes THE RUNAWAYS unique is what made the band itself special: the way they predicted the punk revolution not only musically but by being crafted as an act of provocation."
Hollywood Reporter - 01/25/2010
"THE RUNAWAY burst with energy, youth, excess, female empowerment, sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll....The vigor and pace is electric..."
Los Angeles Times - 03/19/2010
"Writer-director Floria Sigismondi, who cut her teeth in the music video world and is making her feature debut, used her shoestring indie budget to great effect, creating a grainy documentary feel..."
USA Today - 03/19/2010
"[T]he film is anchored by a trio of strong performances....Time and place are potently depicted, down to the glittery eye shadow, Farrah Fawcett 'dos and stacked platform heels."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/26/2010
"Stewart nails Jett's sinewy swagger....The film shows that the Runaways were authentic -- if packaged -- stars who were out of their depth because they were ahead of their time."
Rolling Stone - 04/01/2010
"The 'Cherry Bomb' scene is a raunchy blast of rock history. And Fanning and Stewart, who do their owns singing, seize the moment."
Washington Post - 04/09/2010
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] swift, stylized, coming-of-age film about the germinal 1970s all-girl rock band, begins with an audacious, punk-rock florish..."
Uncut - 09/01/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "Shot in grainy, saturated colour, mid-1970s California is conjured up in all its sun-baked glory."
Empire - 09/01/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "Good period detail alone provides amusements....The soundtrack and atmosphere are a blast."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2010
"[A] subtle little movie....Most of director Floria Sigismondi's career has been in music video, from which she brings useful skills."
Total Film - 09/07/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] painstaking recreations of hazy disco-era dive bars, faded roller rinks and seedy motels, plus a ballsy performance by Kristen Stewart."
