TriStar Pictures has just revealed the first-look image of its uplifting comedy “Ricki and the Flash.”
The photograph shows three-time Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep as she goes electric and takes on a whole new gig – a hard-rocking singer/guitarist.
“Ricki and the Flash” is from Oscar®-winning director Jonathan Demme and Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody.
In a film loaded with music and live performance, Streep stars as Ricki, a guitar heroine who gave up everything for her dream of rock-and-roll stardom, but is now returning home to make things right with her family. Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer, who plays her fictional daughter; Rick Springfield, who takes on the role of a Flash member in love with Ricki; and Kevin Kline, who portrays Ricki’s long-suffering ex-husband.
Opening across the Philippines in August 2015, “Ricki and the Flash” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
