The Academy Award winner, Nicole Kidman is a cinema icon who has shown the ability to transform her physical appearance and mannerisms to immerse herself as characters to elevate the story. Her newest film, BEING THE RICARDOS will challenge her as she transforms into comedy legend, Lucille Ball. Kidman is united with Academy Award winner, Javier Bardem who portrays her loving husband and acting partner Desi Arnaz, as the couple face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage.

Academy Award winning writer and director Aaron Sorkin takes us behind-the-scenes with Lucille and Desi in the intense drama, BEING THE RICARDOS. Threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear and cultural taboos, the film is 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.”

After seeing the movie Lucie Arnaz, daughter of Lucille and Desi, posted a video on her personal YouTube Channel in which she called the movie “freaking amazing”. Arnza complimented Aaron Sorkin for making a great movie that really captured the time period and captured the spirit of her parents. She complimented the wonderful cast, including Nicole Kidman which she claimed of Kidman‘s performance, "became my mother's soul".
