Nicole Kidman grows up as an actress in a new movie
MEXICO CITY.— Nicole Kidman learns valuable lessons every time she plays a real character.
As she recounted her preparations for the role of “I Love Lucy” star Lucille Ball, the actress suggested that her methodical efforts at learning Ball’s enduring grape kicking routine weren’t quite enough when it came time to do her to recreate for the camera.
“I was only practicing on the ground,” he said. “What I didn’t expect was that there would be real grapes. They are actually very slippery. “
In “Being the Ricardos”, a comedy drama written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, Nicole Ball plays in a week-long story in “I Love Lucy”, in which she and her husband Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) fight to Ball’s pregnancy on the show, she denies allegations that Ball is a communist and reaches a momentous point in their marriage.
The film, which is now available on Amazon Prime, contains some recreations of scenes from “I Love Lucy”. But in the end it is a story of discovery, for the television star and for the woman who plays her.
Nicole Kidman, 54, is an Academy Award and Emmy Award winning actress and is receiving another award for her performance in “Being the Ricardos”. But she tends to doubt herself, saying she has little faith in her comedic skills.
Thanks to her approach to Being the Ricardos, the actress found more connection than she expected with Ball, another actress who was pigeonholed and underrated in her day.
Their life stories and talents may not overlap, but they both understood the need for humor to achieve their goals.
