Official Trailer for Amy Poehler's Documentary About 'Lucy and Desi'
"She was fearless!" Amazon has revealed the full official trailer for the documentary film Lucy and Desi, made by actress / comedian / filmmaker Amy Poehler. This recently premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival to mostly positive reviews, as it's a comprehensive doc that covers their entire lives from start to finish. A much more elegant and thorough look into the lives of Lucy and Desi, all the good and bad, than the recent Being the Ricardos film, but they certainly go hand-and-hand and play well as a double feature. Poehler's doc Lucy and Desi explores the rise of comedian icon Lucille Ball, her relationship with Desi Arnaz, and how their groundbreaking sitcom "I Love Lucy" forever changed the television world, cementing her legacy long after her death in 1989. And it's only rated PG! Near perfect use of Lana Del Rey's "Young & Beautiful" in this trailer, too. Highly recommend giving this doc a watch when it lands on Prime Video soon.

From director Amy Poehler, Lucy and Desi explores the unlikely partnership and enduring legacy of one of the most prolific power couples in entertainment history. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz risked everything to be together. Their love for each other led to the most influential show in the history of television, "I Love Lucy", which ran for total of 6 seasons and 180 episodes until 1957. Lucy and Desi is directed by American actress / comedian Amy Poehler, making her first documentary feature after moving into directing with a few other narrative films including Wine Country and Moxie previously, plus a few episodes of "Parks & Rec". It's produced by Jeanne Elfant Festa, Mark Monroe, Michael Rosenberg, Nigel Sinclair, and Justin Wilkes. This first premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Amazon will debut Lucy and Desi streaming on Prime Video starting on March 4th, 2022 coming soon. Who wants to watch this?
