Meryl Streep is an inspiration and really can do anything. In a film loaded with music and live performance, 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.
Born Irish Bostonian transplanted from my hometown of Los Angeles to New York City where I now call Hell's Kitchen my home. I am a creative and artistic person living life as a positive and spiritual person. Lover of people with good humor, live shows be it concerts, Broadway, or local bands, and new experiences that can be educational, inspiring, and fun such as museums, festivals, or traveling. I consider my friends as family, and my family as friends. Whether or not it's one or one hundred people you may have to call as either the genuine payoff is love, understanding, and gift we should cherish. View all posts by Garrett Kimball
