About the Movie

Meryl Streep as you have never seen her before, a hard-rocking singer & guitarist, in Ricki and the Flash, from Oscar®-winning director Jonathan Demme and Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Streep's latest mom role, as Ricki Rendazzo in Ricki and the Flash, has a light, Mamma Mia! vibe, but it still hits all those hot buttons. – Susanna Schrobsdorff, TIME Magazine, Aug 7, 2015

Rotten: Streep and Springfield make a surprisingly sweet pair of retirement-age rockers, but the scattered story line keeps losing the beat. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Aug 7, 2015

Fresh: The skilled veteran Demme alternates dysfunctional family confrontations with easy comedy, expertly peppering in just the right rock tunes along the way. It's hard not to like Ricki, but the film makes no excuses for her actions. – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, Aug 7, 2015

Fresh: The movie is mature in the way it handles the regrets of absentee parents and the ways in which their children relate to them. There's a little Hollywood artifice here but not so much that the emotions feel inauthentic. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Aug 9, 2015

awful

She must have needed money. How sad to see her do something this bad.

Major disappointment

Where do old successful actresses go? To doing with these as old unsuccessful rock stars. Character development was really shabby screenplay horrible music barely tolerable I would not recommend even renting this movie. I was thoroughly disappointed and had such high hopes for it but it felt very short. 👎🏻

Surprisingly good!!!

I have to admit that this movie was far better than I imagined. Streep is very talented and can do any kind of role and even do it well!!!! I was rooting for her character, and she didn’t disappoint.
