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?

Description:

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.
