17 of the Greatest Music Biopics of All Time
Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie and Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett. Need I say more? This biopic covers the rise and fall of the all-girl rock group The Runaways. Based on a book (as many great biopics are), the film shows the dissolution of Currie’s relationship with the band and the breakup that led to Joan Jett’s solo career. Currie herself praised Fanning’s performance and Jett said that the film really nailed the 1970s rock ‘n roll vibe in L.A. No higher praise than that of the movie’s subjects!
