We've seen a few trailers already for Meryl Streep's new rocker-mom film Ricki and the Flash, but these two new teasers, released yesterday by Sony Pictures, have us begging for August 7 to just get here already.
In one of the new clips, we hear Meryl croon "Cold One," a song written specifically for the film, and her smoky, husky vibrato is nothing short of gorgeous.
The other clip, a newly released featurette, gives us a closer glimpse into the lives of these characters. Streep plays Ricki Rendazzo, a woman so consumed by her dreams of performing rock and roll that she misses out on relationships with her family. Her real life daughter, Mamie Grummer, plays Ricki's child in the film, and the all-star cast is rounded out by Kevin Kline (as Ricki's ex-husband) and Audra McDonald.
In the new featurette, we laugh, we get chills, and we even tear up a little. The film is written by Oscar-winner Diablo Cody and directed by Jonathan Demme, also in possession of an Oscar. Check out the new clips below, and be sure to see Ricki and the Flash, in theaters on August 7.
