Biopic of Joan Jett and Cherie Currie and their start as one of the few female bands of the punk rock era. Mostly the film is a bunch of disconnected fragments of Cherie Currie’s dysfunctional home life and snippets of their life on the road. The other players in the band, Lita Ford, Jackie West and Sandy Fox, are barely in the film for any reason than colorful scenery.
Fanning and Stewart are okay. I expect the major flaws reside with the script. All in all, it was a huge letdown. Even the music seemed too produced to do justice to the story. Catch it on the free movie channel like I did, and all you’ve wasted is time.
