With the award season underway, Amazon Studios make its case for Being the Ricardos at a Los Angeles premiere at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures screening. Many of the cast members, crew, and Amazon executives were in attendance, including Nicole Kidman, Javier Bardem, Nina Arianda, J.K. Simmons, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Aaron Sorkin, and more.
The film takes a look at the lives in a tumultuous week of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in filming the famous sitcom with the transformation of Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem into those famous comedians.
Here is the official 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 writer’s room, onto the soundstage, and behind closed doors with Ball and Arnaz during one critical production week of their groundbreaking sitcom I Love Lucy.
