I had been looking forward to seeing this movie for a long time. For a start i'm a big fan of Dakota Fanning, and I quite like Kristen Stewart so was wondering how the two of them would do in these raunchy roles.
I was blown away. Stewart pulls off this part better than i've seen her in any other film. She seems to 'get' Joan Jett and manages to create a very convincing portrayal of her.
Fanning is incredible, as always. It's very different seeing her in a role other than her typical super human/super smart child. She was fantastic as the mixed up Cherie and her progression from innocent child to drugged up rocker was quite a journey to watch.

The film itself is an interesting take on the story of the all girl rock band, The Runaways. It shows the life and exploitation of the girls in the band and the issues they had to deal with along the way.
Great story and great acting. It gave me a love for the music of the runaways and I now see Kristen Stewarts acting in a whole new light!
