Those who are buzzing about The Runaways movie that opens this weekend must also see Foxes, a 1980 teen flick about disenchanted youth in Los Angeles. Jodie Foster stars in this film that features the original Runaways lead singer Cherie Currie as a gorgeous teen living life too fast. Other actors who started their careers here include Scott Baio, Laura Dern, Randy Quaid and the guy who played Damone in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. How does Dakota Fanning compare to the real Cherie Currie?
We love this cult film genre- teenage gritty loss of innocence, exploratory drug and sexual behavior, and many, many broken hearts. We especially like watching the fashion in these movies from the 1970s and 1980s- always inspiring to us design wise. Can you suggest some other films for us to watch?
