[Amazon] Sorkin gets a biopic concentrating on a single week, and talking about topics like sexism and blacklists, but also the talent and charm of an era. He has, as usual, some remarkable dialogue and a less inspired direction, but above all an extraordinary work by Nicole Kidman, well supported by a charming Javier Bardem and the excellent cast. The ineffectiveness of the documentary style scenes is made up by the fascinating recreation of the comic inspiration of Lucille Ball, uncredited director.

Bardem steels the show. My main issues was Aaron Sorkin took to many story telling liberties which I don’t like if your telling a true story still worth a look

There's absolutely nothing wrong with Nicole Kidman's performance. Even Lucille's own daughter said people shouldn't look for an impersonation of her mom's TV character. And the shows scenes amount to 10% of the movie. So the complaints are stupid. I thought Bardem is the one deserving of awards.

I find it hard to take any of post-Botox Nicole Kidman’s work seriously. This is no exception. To be fair, I didn’t know who Lucille Ball was until I started watching the movie. This movie failed to get me interested in Lucille Ball’s life either. I l stopped watching after 30 minutes.

I wasn't sure I was going to be interested in this because I'm not a huge "I Love Lucy" fan. However, the deep dive into this harrowing week for Lucy and the show's cast was very interesting. The relationships between the characters were taken a little past the surface, Nicole Kidman and Javier Ba More

Javier did an amazing job.
I did not believe Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball. She nailed the voice yes but body language & facial expression NO. I have have seen plenty of interviews and such of Lucille Ball not playing a character and just being herself and Nicole Kidman did not get it done here More

I vaguely recall watching "I Love Lucy" - or perhaps I just recall that memorable theme tune, but I have to say I knew nothing at all about the "Desilu" couple before watching this. As ever, it has Sorkin's trademark dialogue - quickly paced, pithy at times; but somehow the performances just didn't More
