The anticipated Prime Video Being The Recardos is finally on our small screen. We get to see Javier Bardem portrays the Cuban musician Desi Arnaz. While Nicole Kidman brings Lucille Ball and Lucy Ricardo to live in a week’s life span thanks to the filmmaker, Aaron Sorkin.

The Synopsis 

Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman, “Moulin Rouge!”) and Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem, “Skyfall”) are threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear, and cultural taboos in Academy Award®-winning writer and director Aaron Sorkin’s (The West Wing, A Few Good Men) 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. Featuring J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) and Nina Arianda (Midnight In Paris).

One common statement was the appreciation for Aaron Sorkin’s screenplay. Bardem talked about the relations between Ball and Arnaz and what he focused on to represent him. Kidman spoke about Ball being hands on with the studio when it was not usual in those days.
