Watch: Meryl Streep Faces the Music in First 'Ricki and the Flash' Trailer

Traditionally, the Oscars haven’t been very comedy-friendly, but “Ricki And The Flash” is stacked with talent no academy could ignore.

Written by Diablo Cody (Oscar winner for “Juno”), directed by Jonathan Demme (Oscar winner for “The Silence Of The Lambs”) and starring Meryl Streep (winner of everything, always), the film follows the titular rock goddess as she attempts to reconcile with the family she neglected when fame came calling.

Ricki’s daughter is played by Streep’s real-life daughter Mamie Gummer and her bandmate is played by real-life rock star Rick Springfield. Kevin Kline, Sebastian Stan and Empress of Broadway Audra McDonald also star.

“Ricki And The Flash” comes out July 26. See it with your mom!
