SIGISMONDI DEBUTS WITH THE RUNAWAYS
A lot of people are excited to see Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett in The Runaways. I am — I think she’s the real deal. But I’m even more interested in seeing the film because it’s Floria Sigismondi’s directing debut. Sigismondi is an artist, photographer and music video director whose well-known clips include videos for the White Stripes, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie and many others. I think Jett, Cherie Curie et al are a great match for Floria’s sharp eye and smart sensibility. More on this film in the days ahead, but, for now, the trailer.
