Movie Review: LUCY AND DESI

Movie Review: LUCY AND DESI


Director: Amy Poehler
Starring: Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill, Carol Burnett, Bette Midler, Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz

If you saw the movie Being the Ricardos, you only scratched the surface of going into the life of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez. The documentary Lucy and Desi goes even further into their love story. You may know Amy Poehler best from her work on Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation. Now she’s stepping behind the camera directing this inside look at the unconditional love between Lucille Ball and her husband Desi Arnaz. Poehler takes this in a chronological order with their daughter Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill providing commentary and insight into her parents’ marriage and careers. Poehler also uses rare vintage audio interviews with both Ball and Arnaz which offer that rare glimpse of them reflecting on their childhoods, careers, and life choices. It’s clear that both were trailblazers a young age. Streaming on Amazon Prime Video
