In theaters, Meryl Streep rocks out in a family dramedy and Kevin Bacon sizzles as a bad cop. At home, imagine the chances of this: Two new DVDs debut a moody film starring Tom Hardy...and a period piece based on a novel by Thomas Hardy. Hardy har-har!
There’ll be no shortage of blockbuster movies this summer, but one I’m most looking forward to is Ricki and the Flash, the dramatic comedy starring Meryl Streep as a veteran rocker. If only she’d paid less attention to sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll, she realizes too late, and more to her all-but-abandoned children (one of whom is played by Meryl's real-life daughter Mamie Gummer).
