Cinemascope: Ricki and the Flash

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2015.

Plot line: Meryl Streep is a hard-rocking singer/guitarist in Ricki and the Flash, 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.

I am a Meryl Streep fangirl, and it was so fun to see her play something really different. Women have been vilified over the millenia for not conforming to some standard set for them by the men in their lives, and it is refreshing to see a woman be true to herself, damn the consequences. Yes, it is a little too lifetimey for my tastes, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. 

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
