The 3/29 issue of People features three of the members of the 70’s girl group The Runaways. Joan Jett, still a touring musician, was part of that group. The biopic  The Runaways, opens in a limited number of theaters on Friday and for it’s full run on April 9th. It is based on Cherie Curry’s 1989 memoir, Neon Angel, recently updated as a tie-in.

The movie is also reviewed in that issue, saying “the script lacks substance, but the actresses deliver on style.” Kristin Stewart, (she plays Bella in the Twilight movies) plays Jett and Dakota Fanning, who is also in the Twilight movies, plays singer Cherie Currie.
