Three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep goes electric and takes on a whole new gig – a hard-rocking singer/guitarist – for Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs, The Manchurian Candidate) and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno).

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 ‘n’ roll stardom, and now returns home to mend family scars.
