Ricki soon discovers her children resent the fact she abandoned them and don't want her around, her ex-husband's new wife isn't all that thrilled to see her waltz back into their lives either and Ricki herself starts to realize just how much she's missed out on.

But as she starts to doubt that she did the right thing in returning home after so many years, her bandmate Greg, played by Springfield,tells her: It doesn't matter if your kids love you or nor. It's not their job to love you. It's your job to love them.'

And so Ricki takes control of her situation, and starts building the bridges that ultimately reunite her with her family and allow her to re-discover a romance of her own with Greg.

'She loves, loves, loves to sing,' she recently told Rolling Stone. 'Loves it more than almost anything.'

'She in part did this so she'd have permission to sing – and I couldn't tell her to shut up!'

The film, which was written by Diablo Cody, who penned the Oscar-winning screenplay for Juno, opens in theatres on August 7.
