Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) and Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) are threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear and cultural taboos. Academy Award (R) – winning writer and director Aaron Sorki gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into 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.

“One of the show’s complicated pleasures is how Lucy and Desi’s marriage — and the palpable love they beamed into homes — played out as a manifestly uneasy power struggle.” — Manohla Dargis, New York Times
Being the Ricardos is a well-acted, cleverly written, and often very funny snapshot of a pivotal time in mid-20th-century political and cultural history.” — Dana Stevens , Slate
