“Being the Ricardos” – A Red Herring Biopic

Nearly 70 years ago, Lucille Ball changed the landscape of Hollywood, Television, and the Entertainment industry forever. The first appearance of the Ricardos living in their 1 bedroom apartment in New York on television was perhaps as equally monumental to television history as Armstrong stepping on the moon. Sorkin's latest film captures this quintessential time in American culture, in a brilliant manner that draws upon multiple layers of complex metaphors and parallels to American life, that the audience is sent on an emotional and enthralling dramatic journey back in time. One could hardly hear a pin drop in the auditorium when Bardem takes to the stage in the studio to tell his audience members, 70 years ago, that his wife was not a communist. More profoundly, one could faintly hear Lucille Ball's heartbeat as she paused for 20 seconds when Arnaz famously exclaimed "Lucy, I'm home". Lucille Ball in that moment decided what home she wanted. Nicole Kidman transcended the silver screen and brought that moment to the audience, and it is a moment one will not soon forget. "Being the Ricardos" did not disappoint and only further cements Amazon Studios as a major contender in the future of motion picture entertainment.
