The Runaways: Then and Now

The Runaways had its red carpet premiere last Tuesday at The Arclight Theaters in Hollywood, California. It was a cool moment in rock ‘n roll history when lead actresses Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart ran into real-life Runaways Joan Jett and Cherie Currie.

Dakota and Kristen play Joan and Cherie respectively in the ’70s biopic of their all-girl rock band The Runaways. Fans are looking forward to Dakota’s mature role and her onscreen kiss with rebel Kristen.

Although the PG kind is worried about the movie’s sexual, druggie, and wild partying themes, I say nay to the critics! The ’70s was an iconic time in history when rock ‘n roll was in its purest form—way before the pop kind tainted it with bubblegum and candy.

Two days to go before it’s out for public consumption!
