PG-13 | | Drama, Music
A pair of siblings must choose whether to pursue their dream of touring with their rock band or support their family and stay in Cleveland, Ohio.
The final scene, where the Barbusters perform in front of an adoring crowd, was shot twice. Bits of the first version can be seen in the music video for the song "Light of Day" (where Joan Jett's hair is in a noticeably different, fluffier style). Rolling Stone magazine reported that Jett was not happy with the first version, and asked that this be reshot. Director Paul Schrader said, "I was about to leave the set and wait out the storm in my trailer, but I listened to her arguments, and decided she was right."
I like you, you're all right. You've got real family loyalty. Too bad your sister ain't worth it!
