Meryl Streep takes on a whole new gig – a hard-rocking singer/guitarist – for Oscar®-winning director Jonathan Demme and Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody 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. Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer; Rick Springfield, portraying a Flash member in love with Ricki; Kevin Kline as Ricki’s ex-husband; and Audra McDonald as Kline’s new wife.

Aside from looking like a character from American Horror Story: Coven, Meryl Streep has a lot of great musical moments in Ricki and the Flash. Playing an aging rockstar, the three-time Oscar winner sings “American Girl,” “Wooly Bully” and even Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” but the latest clip from the film features her vocal talents on a new song called “Cold One.”
