Here is a great review: “Ricki and the Flash” stars Meryl Streep as a free-wheeling rock musician who, approaching middle age, decides it’s time to get to know the family she left behind when she hit the road seeking stardom. She finds those she left behind are totally dysfunctional, especially her daughter (Mamie Gummer, Streep’s daughter in real life), who is suicidal. The film’s comedic overtones are pushed by director Jonathan Demme, but this is not his finest work. Streep and the other characters – and their dialogue – are quirky in the slick and not entirely satisfactory style of screenwriter Diablo Cody. But Streep and Gummer are terrific, as always. They can make anything work – and do. Source: Ricki Movie
