The Runaways has received plenty of buzz since opening March 19, partly because of advance word from Sundance and SXSW, where the movie played, and partly because it stars possibly the biggest female movie star in the world these days (Kristen Stewart). For the uninitiated, the movie looks back at the band that would open the door for other all-girl rock groups. Stewart plays Joan Jett while Dakota Fanning is Cherie Currie.
So far, it looks like all of the press coverage is warranted – the movie scored 65 percent positive reviews on rottentomatoes.com, with Owen Gleiberman and Roger Ebert each having nice things to say about it. I haven’t seen it yet, but I trust those two guys for the most part.
If you’d like to see it for yourself, I’ve got 25 passes good for you and a guest to check it out anywhere the movie is running. All you need to do is e-mail me ([email protected]) your NAME and MAILING ADDRESS and we’ll have them sent to you.
UPDATE: All the passes are gone. Thanks to everyone who e-mailed in.
