Meryl Streep, rock 'n' roll mom and wearer of leather pants, plays guitar alongside bandmate Rick Springfield in the newly released trailer for Ricki and The Flash. In the film by Diablo Cody, Streep's character has distanced herself from her family to pursue music, but is now making an effort reconnect after tending to her heartbroken daughter. And the best way to achieve that "estranged from loved ones" look is half-braided hair. Streep's full jam sesh hits theaters on August 7th.
