Exclusive Sneak Peek: "Ricki and the Flash" Is the Meryl Streep Movie We've Been Waiting For

It's been a summer of blockbuster comedies and animated films, but what the theater seems to be lacking is a smart, engaging film that captivates a more grown-up audience.

Get ready for "Ricky and the Flash," a story about redemption that explores the topic of how women balance careers with motherhood.


Meryl Streep stars alongside real-life daughter Mamie Gummer in a story for women and men alike who want a good story.

The film is slated to be released August 7.

Check out a sneak peek of the upcoming film in the video above.
