About ‘Being the Ricardos’
The 50s sitcom “I Love Lucy” was loved by millions of American households for six seasons during the (first) Golden Age of Television. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz’s hilarious characters on the show made them stars until a whole series of scandals and drama unfold, threatening their livelihood and relationship. Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, “Being the Ricardos”, will celebrate their legacy. The movie also stars J.K. Simmons as William Frawley (Fred) and Nina Arianda as Vivian Vance (a.k.a. Ethel Mertz).
Sorkin told Deadline, “[The story] weaves in and out so beautifully telling [Lucy and Desi’s] story. It just weaves in and out — this is really a love story. It’s a romantic drama. Lucy and Desi were passionately in love with each other, and it’s just heartbreaking that the two of them couldn’t get it together to have this relationship for very interesting reasons.”
Kidman also chimed in, opening up about how special it was that Ball and Arnaz’s daughter Lucie Arnaz supported the movie and loved Kidman’s and Bardem’s performances. She said, “It’s been a huge, huge relief because it’s her parents and we wanted to honor them but we wanted to show them with their flaws.. Javier had his own conversations with her. She was very supportive of us. She wanted us to play the roles.”
Durante una semana de producción de «Te quiero, Lucy» —desde la lectura del guion del lunes hasta la grabación con público del viernes— Lucille Ball y Desi Arnaz se enfrentan a unas crisis personales y profesionales que amenazan su serie, sus carreras y su matrimonio.
