Kristen shows off her rocker side in "The Runaways"

Kristen Stewart is best known for playing Bella Swan in "The Twilight Saga" films, but the young woman can handle a wide range of roles. The starlet's acting abilities are even more apparent in "The Runaways," which is now available on DVD .

Stewart stars as Joan Jett, the guitarist of the female rocker band The Runaways, which formed in 1975 when most of its members were still in their teens. Joining her is Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning), who became the lead vocalist of the group.

The film follows the early days of the band and the musicians' rise to fame. It also chronicles the girls' use of drugs and their relationship with their manager, Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon).

While "The Runaways" is certainly an exciting film for Stewart's fans, those who appreciate the young actress' talents may enjoy some of her other recent projects as well. In fact, "Adventureland" and "The Cake Eaters" both received wide critical acclaim upon their release.
