Step behind the scenes of one of the greatest loves of all time in ‘Being The Ricardos’
Lucille Ball. Desi Arnaz. Two of the biggest stars of their age and who defined the very concept of American television with I Love Lucy. Now thanks to writer/director Aaron Sorkin and stars Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem, their turbulent personal and love life will now be brought to the big screen for all to witness in Being The Ricardos.
Here’s the official trailer:
Here’s the full synopsis:
Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) and Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) are threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear and cultural taboos in Academy Award®-winning writer and director Aaron Sorkin’s behind-the-scenes drama Being the Ricardos. A revealing glimpse of the couple’s complex romantic and professional relationship, the film takes audiences into the writers’ room, onto the soundstage and behind closed doors with Ball and Arnaz during one critical production week of their groundbreaking sitcom “I Love Lucy.”
Both Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem are pitch-perfect as Ball and Arnaz, and both have certainly transformed themselves into the characters, Kidman especially so with her spot-on visual and dramatic performance here as Ball.
For many viewers, the story of Ball and Arnaz will be new territory, but their turbulent on-screen/0ff-screen relationship makes for plenty of drama and with Sorkin writing and direction you can be certain that this new film will be an unmissable event.
Being The Ricardos will arrive on Amazon Prime on December 21.
