Plot synopsis

The film recounts Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and her friend Cherie Currie's (Dakota Fanning) rise from rebellious Southern California teens to headliners of the now-legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands.

Guitarist-singer Joan, drummer Sandy West and lead guitarist Lita Ford join forces with singer Cherie under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon). With her home life in tatters, Cherie adopts the band as her new family - especially Joan, who becomes her partner-in-crime and sometime lover. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself - and so do its two leads: Joan is the band's pure rock 'n' roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is cast in the role of sex kitten.

But during a tour of Japan at the peak of the band's quaalude-popping success, drugs and personality clashes drive a wedge between the girls that build to a flash point, leading to an emotional and surprising conclusion.

The Runaways is the story of two troubled teenage girls whose turbulent friendship becomes the stuff of rock 'n' roll legend.
