We all get embarrassed my our parents – it’s completely inevitable. But what if your mother was Meryl Streep? Changes things up a little huh? Well, we asked Mamie Gummer if that’s even possible for her, in the build up to the release of Ricki and the Flash – where she collaborates with Streep.
Gummer takes on the role of Ricki’s (Streep) daughter, and we also asked about acting alongside her mum, and whether it was enjoyable to shoot the scene where the pair get into a full-on confrontation. We also discussed the challenges in playing a role overcome with depression in a film that’s got a light, playful edge.
