A fantastic drama with a great cast and a realistic story. One of my favourite drama films of the decade. Plus it's interesting to see Joan Jett in a movie. I highly recommend it.

Flawed but Joan Jett's performance makes it worth watching. perfect casting, and her acting ability is surprisingly great. Gena Rowlands is fine in the role of the mother. Michael J Fox is badly miscast. Not a cheery film, and it has some very slow patches. For some reason, the Ohio setting adds to the film, it makes it believable.

Not really Scrader's forte. Wants to be the Bruce Springsteen story, but done too late and with wrong cast.

Really enjoyed this family drama and Jett is every bit as good as Fox.

Most of the characters are quite flawed individuals, but they create an interesting dynamic with one another. Having Joan Jett and some hard rock was also pretty cool.
