Host Betty Jo Tucker reviews Ricki and the Flash, starring Meryl Streep. Plus, noted film critic Mack Bates drops by the show to talk about Streep’s illustrious acting career. Considered by many to be the greatest contemporary film actress, Streep has been honored with three Oscars and 21 Academy Award nominations. She earned those Oscars for The Iron Lady, Sophie’s Choice and Kramer vs. Kramer. But some of her most popular performances can be seen in such lighter fare as The Devil Wears Prada ,It’s Complicated and Mamma Mia! She displays her considerable vocal talent as a rock-and-roll singer in Ricki and the Flash. Known for being a perfectionist in preparing for her roles, Streep also boasts the ability to master any accent. Drama, comedy, musicals – all have been conquered by this acclaimed actress. Bates, a frequent guest on Movie Addict Headquarters, has written freelance articles for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and serves as a staff blogger for Milwaukee Magazine’s official film blog. He also received a local Emmy for his work on The Robert and Rosie Show.
