Ricki and the Flash :- Watch Ricki and the Flash on Youtube on Fire, A musician who gave up everything for her dream of rock-and-roll stardom returns home, looking to make things right with her family.A woman named Linda leaves her family to pursue her dream of being a rock star. And she hasn’t achieved the notoriety she hoped for. Her ex-husband calls her to tell her that her daughter suffered a breakdown because her husband left her. She goes back to Indianapolis. But her daughter doesn’t exactly welcome her with open arms. But she stays and tries. And her sons also don’t welcome her warmly. Ricki(Meryl Streep) a 60 something year old former rocker, who plays gigs at nights, and is a big hit at the bar she plays at, but by day she works as a cashier at a supermarket. But one day Ricki gets a call from her ex husband(Kevin Kline) saying there daughter Julie(Mamie Gummer, Streep’s real life daughter) is in midst of a mental breakdown after her marriage fell apart. Ricki flies down in hopes that she can help. But will be able to reconnect with the family she abandoned? Meryl Streep is good here, giving a good comedic/dramatic performance, and I really liked her musical talent also, I know she has showed it other films, but still always a joy. And she and Kevin Kline have such great chemistry. It was cool seeing Mamie Gummer acting with her mother, she proves that she is every bit as talented in acting. I hope she will fall into her own, and not being thought of as Meryl Streep’s daughter. Rick Springfield is great as Streep’s guitarist boyfriend. A great light on it’s feet film. It has to be tough to be the child of a living legend, especially in show business, but Mamie Gummer seems to be handling it quite well, thank you very much. The oldest daughter of multiple Oscar winner Meryl Streep, Gummer is making a name for herself in the family business. Like Emilio Estevez (son of Martin Sheen) and Angelina Jolie (daughter of Jon Voight), Gummer uses a family name (her father’s last name) while establishing her own identity in film (and television). Like Jaden Smith (son of Will Smith), Gummer has joined her famous parent on screen while developing her acting skills. As a toddler, Gummer had a role in her mother’s movie “Heartburn” (1987). As an adult, Gummer played a younger version of her mother’s character in 2007’s “Evening”. (Gummer also had a brief scene in Streep’s 2006 film “The Devil Wears Prada” but that scene was dropped in editing.) In 2015, it’s the mother-daughter team playing mother and daughter in “Ricki and the Flash” (PG-13, 1:41) – and it’s kind of hard to decide which actress did a better job.
