Below we have new photos for Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning movie “The Runaways.”
“The Runaways” synopsis: The Runaways (Neon Angels) is based on lead-singer Cherie Currie’s book ‘Neon Angel’ – a reflection of her experiences as a rock star, but also delivering a strong anti-drug warning to teens and others. David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” serves as a metaphor for the narrative– a slow countdown, a surreal but spectacular rise to fame, then alienation and burnout – a long long way from home.
The movie chronicles The Runaways from 1975 – 1977; formed by teenage girls, Joan Jett (Kristen Stewat) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning), living near Hollywood, CA., and heavily manipulated by their manager Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon) as ‘jailbait rock’ (all the girls were 16 or younger when the band recorded their first album). The band ultimately succeeds on their own merits as musicians, becoming the first all-girl rock-band to ever break into the world of arena-filling hard rock acts. Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough also reportedly has a role in the film playing Currie’s twin sister.
