Meryl Streep has covered the spectrum of guises over her near 40 year film career but her fearlessness shows no signs of abating as she takes on the role of Ricki, a never-quite-made-it musician who at 66 is still playing dive bars in LA with her band The Flash. 512 more words


'Ricki and the Flash' (Η Ρίκι και η Ροκ) - [2,5/8]

Μια γυναίκα που παράτησε τον άντρα και τα τρία μικρά παιδιά της για να κυνηγήσει το ροκ όνειρο της, επιστρέφει ύστερα από πολλά χρόνια για να συμπαρασταθεί στην κόρη της που περνάει μια μεγάλη ψυχολογική κρίση μετά τον χωρισμό της.


Flash! Ah-ah, she'll save every one of us!

As a hook, it’s pretty much irresistible. Watch Meryl Streep, who apparently can’t pour herself a cup of coffee without taking on a new accent and getting an Oscar nomination for it, strap on a guitar and unleash her inner rock goddess. 975 more words


'Ricki & the Flash'

A convincing if somewhat strained mother/daughter relationship (real life Meryl Streep/Mamie Gummer kin) and a very believable Streep as a rock musician (is there nothing she can’t do!) are the highlights of this somewhat mediocre ‘so what?’ dysfunctional family drama. 28 more words
