As our James reported last month, Meryl Streep sings in the new film by Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody, Ricki and the Flash. Streep stars as Ricki Rendazzo (who seems a bit Melissa Etheridge mixed with some real-life Meryl) a guitar heroine who made a world of mistakes as she followed her dreams of being rock-and-roll star. Her movie daughter is played real-life daughter Mamie Gummer, Rick Springfield, is a Flash member in love with Ricki, Kevin Kline is Ricki’s ex-husband and Audra McDonald is Kline’s new wife. I cannot wait. Watch.
