Meryl Streep as you have never seen her before, a hard-rocking singer/guitarist, in Ricki and the Flash, from Oscar®-winning director Jonathan Demme and Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody. 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.

Teen-friendly dramedy tackles big issues; some edgy content.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ricki and the Flash doesn't shy away from showing mother-child (and ex-spouse) conflict. It talks quite openly about why the characters' relationships are a mess, though its ultimate message is that you can fix your mistakes if you really want to. Some of the issues at play are fairly heavy -- abandonment, parent-child estrangement, conflicting political viewpoints, accepting someone's sexual identity, etc. -- making it pretty intense for younger viewers. Other mature content includes strong language (including "s--t" and one "f--k"), sexual innuendo, kissing/starting to take clothes off (though nothing graphic shown), drinking (sometimes too much; hangovers are shown), and pot smoking.
