LA, 1975: Feisty guitar-strumming teen Joan Jett (Stewart) wants to form the first kick-ass all-girl band, and with the slimy enthusiasm of record producer Kim Fowley (Shannon) finds 15 year-old Cherie Currie (Fanning), the jailbait in the combo. The band would go on to become iconic rock chicks of the ’70s.
Cringe-making fun for survivors of the ’70s. For the younger majority: a familiar rise and fall of sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll enlivened by the gender reversal and performances.
