The first night at Locarno Film Festival was truly special. The night started off on the red carpet and the great oppurtunity to see Edward Norton so up close. He then went on stage to receive the Moet & Chandon Excellence Award.
The presence of such a huge Hollywood star in Locarno has really given the 68th a special start and it will certainly be one for the albums.

After the Award it was time for the World Premiere of Ricky and the Flash a great concert film played by Meryl Streep. In the movie she is playing the guitar and singing many rock hits. The movie is a family drama, a comedy and a journey of redemption all together.
Meryl Streep in the movie plays Ricky who has to live with the guilty feeling of having abandoned her family to try to pursue her dream of becoming a rockstar.
What makes this family drama even more intriguing is the fact the to play the role of Meryl Streep's daughter is Mamie Gummer her daughter also in real life.
