Nicole Kidman attends the 55th annual Country Music Association awards at the Bridgestone Arena on November 10, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee.

The trailer for Amazon Prime’s Being the Ricardos sparked mixed reviews among Lucille Ball fans on social media last week, with many viewers divided about Nicole Kidman’s portrayal of the television icon. In the biopic, Kidman and co-star Javier Bardem portray the sitcom legends Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz amid a particularly chaotic week during the heyday of I Love Lucy. The beloved TV duo are “threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear and cultural taboos,” with the film promising a “revealing glimpse of the couple’s complex romantic and professional relationship” offscreen.

Being the Ricardos will open in theaters on December 10 before streaming on Prime Video on December 21. The biopic also stars J.K. Simmons and Nina Arianda. Watch the trailer and check out reactions below:
