Arthouse Cinema: Being the Ricardos
Generating serious awards buzz for its transformative performances and crackling screenplay, director Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing") delivers a revealing glimpse into the complex romantic and professional relationship of America's favorite sitcom couple -- Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) and Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem). Taking the audience into the writers’ room, onto the soundstage, and behind closed doors during one critical production week of "I Love Lucy," the couple are threatened by shocking personal accusations and a political smear campaign. "In peeling away the myths of pop culture and its lovable celebrities, Sorkin reveals the source of its mighty and lasting power" (The New Yorker).
