What is it about Meryl Streep that makes her such a magnetic presence on screen? Is it her face? The way she walks? The way she has every single syllable of every single word of every single dialogue under absolute control? It's been thirty years since she's been appearing in movies and not once has she rendered a performance that seemed like she didn't put any effort in it. Even in forgettable movies Streep remains the only aspect worth remembering.

Another film that is sort of overall mediocre but has yet another unforgettable performance from Streep is this week's 'Ricki and the Flash'. The film is directed by Jonathan Demme, the famously reclusive filmmaker who has made such classics as 'The Silence of the Lambs', 'Philadelphia' and 'Rachel Getting Married'. Demme's name is itself worth investing some interest in the film but to pair his talent with Streep's takes things to another level.
