Storyline

"EDGEPLAY: A film about The Runaways" chronicles the rise and disintegration of the seminal '70's all-teenage-girl rock band The Runaways, whose members included then-unknown future rock stars Lita Ford and Joan Jett. The film explores the effects of verbal, emotional and psychological abuse on girls too young to drink, but old enough for sex, drugs and rock n' roll. Written by Sacred Dogs Entertainment

Where's the music???
8 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watching a documentary about a rock band, I was expecting to see more archival concert footage or hear more music. There are only two concert segments -- both feature covers: Velvet Underground's 'Rock n Roll' and Troggs' 'Wild Thing'. The incidental music backing the interview segments sounds like something out of "Twin Peaks." Perhaps this type of score was selected to enhance the seedy backstory of these girls who were eaten alive and spit out by an unmerciful music industry.

This film is really for fans only. Anyone who doesn't know the backstory of the Runaways might end up confused or bored. But for true Runaways-maniacs, the interviews are quite revealing.
