Being the Ricardos

12/21 – Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) and Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) are threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear and cultural taboos in Academy Award (R)-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.”

Q-tips say: Just ok – was hard, many times, when they switched to the past to the present, to adjust to which was which.

Mrs. Q says: A busy and oddly disjointed portrait of American TV icon Lucille Ball. Kidman’s┬áLucille Ball is a fully realized character… The problem is, Ball ends up being so unlikable you don’t want to spend this much time with her.
