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

Raw and heartwrenching. Edgeplay blew my mind. Stunning.
31 May 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I never would have thought that the behind the scenes goings on were like what was explained in this film. I always thought that these girls had it made in the shade. My head spun when I listened to Cherie Currie's depiction of life in the Runaways. But what really brought me to tears was Sandy West's struggle in life. She went from from a teen rock star to a life of crime and prison. Why? What happened to her? She was such a great drummer and had so much potential.

The ending of this film is so completely unexpected and chilling. It made me cry. It made my blood run cold. I can't recommend this film more. If you love rock and roll - see this film: Edgeplay: a film about the Runaways.

Great job Victory!!!!!!!!!!!!
