Jonathan Demme directs Meryl Streep in Ricki and the Flash and Sony has released a new trailer for the upcoming Aug. 7 release.

Written by Diablo Cody (Juno), Streep plays the titular Ricki Rendazzo, a hard-rocking singer/guitarist who made a world of mistakes as she followed her dreams of rock-and-roll stardom. Returning home, Ricki gets a shot at redemption and a chance to make things right as she faces the music with her family. Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer; Rick Springfield, portraying a Flash member in love with Ricki; Kevin Kline as Ricki’s ex-husband; and Audra McDonald as Kline’s new wife.
