Entertainment Reviews:

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."

Product Description:

The story of the groundbreaking '70s female rock group the Runaways is recounted in this River Road Entertainment production focusing on the duo of guitarist/vocalist Joan Jett (portrayed by TWILIGHT's Kristen Stewart) and lead vocalist/keyboardist Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) as they navigate a rocky road of touring and record label woes under the malevolent eye of abusive manager Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon) during their teen years. Acclaimed video artist Floria Sigismondi directs from her own script, with Scout Taylor-Compton co-starring as guitarist Lita Ford.
