They appear alongside 80s popstar Rick Springfield, who plays Meryl's bandmate and love interest.

Legendary actress Meryl was joined by her eldest daughter Mamie at the film's New York premiere, as she gushed about how proud she was of her.

Meryl (66) told US Weekly, "It was great to work with my daughter! I was blown away. I'm not objective! Don't ask me this! But I think other people have corroborated that [she's talented], so it's [been] really fun."

Meryl previously starred with Mamie (now 32) when she was a baby in the 1986 movie Heartburn.

Mamie colluded that it was a rewarding experience to work with her Oscar-winning mum.

"[The best thing about working with my mom] is the shorthand, I guess. And also how respectful she is of everyone on a project. It makes for a really pleasant experience," she said.

Meryl has three other children with her husband Don Grummer; actress Grace, model Louisa and musician Henry.

"I'm very proud of all my children—all my daughters and my son—yeah. It's not just her. I've got some stars at home too," she told reporters on the red carpet.
