"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

The title refers to an element of sexual game playing where one tries to take a partner to the very edge of their sexual or emotional limits. See more »
[Sandy West's Mom]
As I look back and Sandy will agree with me, I should have tied her to the bed and said, "You can't do this." But you can't really take away your children's dreams.

This is very well done, and is very informative and fans of the band will find this engrossing. But with the recent death of Sandy West, the lack of participation in this documentary of Joan Jett is very sad. Let's face it, there will never be another documentary about this band, that will have the opportunity to tell the true story, or at least the story of the band from each of the major participants. It's very sad that after all this time the participants in this story could not put their differences aside for long enough to put on film their story and feelings about their memories about this unique and very neglected band. Or maybe the fact that they could not, is the true story of how horrible this experience was for the young women who lived it.
