The first look of the film, which arrived online yesterday, shows the 65-year-old actress playing an electric guitar in a bright top, cool necklace and braids, reported Ace Showbiz.

In the comedy-drama, Streep plays a singer and guitarist named Ricki who abandons her rocker dream to make amends with her family. She and her ex-husband then rally around their daughter who is having rough time with her divorce.

Kevin Kline plays Streep's ex-husband, while her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer also makes an appearance. Other cast members include Rick Springfield, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' star Sebastian Stan and 'Private Practice' star Audra McDonald.

The movie is directed by Jonathan Demme of 'Philadelphia' and 'Rachel Getting Married' fame.
