Bad Reputation


Rock-and-roll pioneer Joan Jett has been shredding hard since she founded The Runaways back in the 1970s, and at age 60, she shows no signs of slowing down. This breathlessly entertaining documentary spans the many eras and facets of her career, including interviews from a wide range of peers and protégés, including Michael J. Fox, Debbie Harry, Miley Cyrus, Billie Jo Armstrong, Kathleen Hanna, Kristen Stewart, Iggy Pop, and Laura Jane Grace, to name just a few. Revel in Jett’s trademark humble swagger as the film chronicles her journey to becoming one of the most influential figures in punk rock history.
