Sony has premiered the first trailer for the latest movie to star one of our national treasures, Meryl Streep. The multiple Oscar winner and record holder for most Academy Award nominations in history returns in a role that has her stretching the boundaries of what we’ve seen her do.
Streep stars as the title character in Ricki and the Flash. The story centers on Streep’s rocker, who is a successful musician that leads the titular band. She’s been on the road performing most of her life and we get the impression she has not been the best mother. But, when she gets a call from her husband (Kevin Kline) that her daughter’s (Streep’s real-life daughter Mamie Gummer) husband has left her, Ricki heads home to help heal.
But, things won’t be that easy. Ricki has a lot of making up to do with all her kids.
Look for Ricki and the Flash on August 7.
