a mother’s love (?) . . .
“Ricki and the Flash” – a movie opening August 7th in which Meryl Streep plays an aging mother who left her family to be a rock musician. Kevin Kline plays her ex-husband, Audra MacDonald plays his wife and Mamie Gummer plays Meryl’s daughter (as in real life too.)
In the trailer below, someone says, “It doesn’t matter if your kids don’t love you. It’s not their job to love you. . . It’s your job to love THEM.” Ah, a universal truth mothers know all too well. And a second universal truth: “Sometimes a girl just needs her mother!”
