Episode 7: The Runaways (2010)

This week, Alicia and Sarah continue their tour of Sarah’s celebrity crushes with Power Lesbian Kristen Stewart in her role as another Power Lesbian, Joan Jett. Both Sarah and Alicia agree: this movie is 5/5 Totinos. Listen as they talk about the exploitation of women, the ways in which Kim Fowley was a monster of a human being, the visual and audio perfection of this movie, and everyone’s favorite curly-haired cutie Alia Shawkat!
