Wonderful script, wonderful performances and great pacing, all trademarks of Aaron Sorkin. However, when you find out how inaccurate the whole movie actually is, you feel manipulated and that spoils the enjoyment. Finally, Nicole Kidman is great: she got the demeanor and voice really well. But she was handicapped by such heavy makeup to make her look like Lucille Ball that her final performance is somewhat tainted. This is all the more puzzling since Javier Bardem looks nothing like Desi Arnaz: why go to such desperate lengths to make the one lead female actress look the person she portrays, but not do that for literally ANYONE ELSE in the film?
