Amazon Prime bio-drama written and directed by Aaron Sorkin. Being the Ricardos (2021) follows Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) and Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) during one critical production week of their groundbreaking sitcom I Love Lucy, as they are threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear, and cultural taboos, that could jeopardize their careers and marriage.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
