Meryl Streep just gets better and better

9 May

I don’t know that I would brave the mall to see this (I never do–it’s been at least ten years since I did it last), but boy, I’m seeing it as soon as it can be managed:


She does all the singing and guitar playing in the movie–how utterly cool is that she learned to play acoustic guitar just to play her role authentically?


Meryl Streep takes on a whole new gig – a hard-rocking singer/guitarist – for Oscar®-winning director Jonathan Demme and Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody in Ricki and the Flash. In an original and electrifying film loaded with live musical performances, Streep stars as Ricki Rendazzo, a guitar heroine who made a world of mistakes as she followed her dreams of rock-and-roll stardom. Returning home, Ricki gets a shot at redemption and a chance to make things right as she faces the music with her family. Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer; Rick Springfield, portraying a Flash member in love with Ricki; Kevin Kline as Ricki’s ex-husband; and Audra McDonald as Kline’s new wife.
