Give it up for The Streepster!
If you were to approach us and ask “Hey ReelGood! Do you think Ricki and the Flash looks like a good movie?”, our response would probably be something along the lines of “No, it looks pretty shit. And don’t call me Shirley.” Yes, unfortunately for the Streepster, her brand new flick doesn’t look that crash hot, despite having Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia) behind the wheel. There’s very much a been there/done that kind of feel to the whole affair and we’re not entirely sure it was all that enjoyable when we were being there and doing that in the first place. Could be more charming than annoying but then again it could be way more annoying than charming. We may never know…but we probably will know.
“An aging woman, Ricki, chased her dreams of becoming a famous rock star by abandoning her family. She gets a last chance to put things right when her ex-husband Pete asks her to visit Chicago and help their estranged, divorced-daughter Julie through a difficult time.”
Ricki And The Flash stars Meryl Streep, Mamie Gummer, Kevin Kline, Sebastian Stan and Rick Springfield and is set for release in August, 2015.
