Review of The Runaways So. Good.
First of all, Dakota Fanning is amazing.
Always. In everything. I own Push
because of her. Push!
And she owns this movie. Yes, it is a little uncomfortable watching her strut around in like a corset and garter, and to see people taking pictures of her crotch, but Cherie was 15/16 when all this was going on so feeling uncomfortable is a good thing. But, back to Dakota. Stunning, magnificent, wonderful. The change you see Cherie go through is heart-breaking, but expertly portrayed.
Second of all, KStew. Now, ya'll know I've been tough on KStew since the whole Twilight thing started, and honestly, justifiable so because she sucks in those movies. This movie however reminded me why I used to like Kristen
. It has to be said that she's no Dakota Fanning, she didn't blow me out of the water, but she was good here, and really quite charismatic and moving in some scenes. The scene where she freaks out in the recording studio was really good.( And now the thing everyone cares about *drum roll* The Joan/Cherie plot-line! )
And now it's time for me to spend the afternoon listening to the soundtrack while marking *sob* God, I hate working.
