Bad Reputation

9/26/2018 | SIFF Cinema Uptown

Film & Media Arts Queen Anne/Seattle Center

Joan Jett put her hard work in long before the fame that came with her number one hit, “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll”, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, influencing many musicians and generations of younger bands. Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene, and their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: even though people tried to define Jett and keep her stuck to one hit, she never compromised.
