Following the immense success of last year’s The Trial of the Chicago 7, acclaimed filmmaker and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is back to the big screen this winter with his brand new biographical drama film Being the Ricardos.
The film, which stars Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz respectively, offers viewers a glimpse of the couple’s complex romantic and professional relationship and takes them 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.
You can take a look at the trailer below:
Other cast members include J.K. Simmons, Nina Arianda, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jake Lacy, and Clark Gregg.
Being the Ricardos is scheduled to receive a limited theatrical release on December 10, 2021 before heading to streaming service Amazon Prime Video on December 21.
