The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Being The Ricardos”

By Matt Neglia 

For our second review this week, Josh ParhamDan Bayer & Lauren LaMagna joined me to discuss the latest film from Academy Award-winner Aaron Sorkin, “Being The Ricardos,” starring Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem. The two actors are playing Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz behind the camera and Lucy and Ricky Ricardo in front of the camera from the famous television show “I Love Lucy.” There has been some controversy surrounding their casting, and the movie has received mixed reviews from critics. What did we think of it, though? What did we think of the performances, writing, and storytelling structure? We discuss all of these topics and the film’s awards season chances in our review down below. Please take a listen and enjoy!
