Lucy Arnaz’s Thoughts on ‘Being The Ricardos’

The daughter of Lucille Ball is sharing her thoughts on the new Amazon Prime flick, Being The Ricardos. Telling the story of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz’s relationship offscreen, Lucy Arnaz says that some scenes are inaccurate.

“He’s taking some theatrical license and sort of cramming a couple of true events that did happen, they just didn’t happen at the same time,” she says in an interview.

While she does not give any specifics as to which parts of the film are made up, she gives the movie a positive review overall.

“You do learn a lot about what it was like back then. His dialogue is always incredible. And I think he treated my mother and my father really well. I think they are accurate composites of these people.”

Lucille Ball’s Portrayal

Lucille Ball’s daughter also shares her reactions to Nicole Kidman’s performance.

“Nicole did a spectacular job. The two days that I watched, though, were both little flashbacks, so she was playing Lucy in the late ’30s and mid-’40s. She wasn’t Lucy of Lucy Ricardo fame yet, so it was a trifle different. And I know she meant it to be, so it could feel different. But boy, what she did was astounding. She’s got such poise and class.”

Arnaz is not the only one who is in awe of Kidman’s performance. Aaron Sorkin praises her portrayal of Lucille Ball in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“Now, the fact of the matter is when Nicole, as Lucille Ball, plays Lucy Ricardo, I think she does an incredible job of mimicking Lucy.”
