Lucille Ball's daughter Lucie Arnaz has nice things to say about Nicole Kidman who has played the legendary comedian in the biopic "Being the Ricardos."

In a recent interview with Palm Springs Life Magazine, the 70-year-old actress said, "Nicole did a spectacular job."

She went on to explain, "The two days that I watched, though, were both little flashbacks, so she was playing Lucy in the late '30s and mid-'40s. She wasn't Lucy of Lucy Ricardo fame yet, so it was a trifle different. And I know she meant it to be, so it could feel different. But boy, what she did was astounding. She's got such poise and class."

Lucie also said she is yet to see the initial filmed scenes for the biopic. However, she described what she saw on set as "extremely classy and first-rate," adding the cast members are "really great performers."

In "Being the Ricardos," Kidman plays Ball while Javier Bardem portrays Desi Arnaz, Ball's husband.

Earlier this year, a photo showing Kidman as Ball began circulating on various social networking sites, including Twitter.

The film, directed by Aaron Sorkin, depicts a week of filming the beloved 1950s comedy show "I Love Lucy," led by Ball and Arnaz, while the couple deals with a crisis that could jeopardize their careers and another that could destroy their marriage.

Though details of the movie are strictly kept under wraps, Lucie said it includes scenes in which her mother is convincing the network to hire her father.

However, according to her, there are certain scenes she wishes Sorkin had not included in the film.

"I couldn't get my way and have them taken out, but they weren't accurate," she said. "And I thought, 'That shouldn't be in there, because that never happened. That's not true. And it's not just theatrical license, it just wasn't true." 

"And the day they shot the scene, the sprinklers went off on the set and destroyed the whole set," Lucie continued.

In June, Kidman opened up about the challenges she has so far faced while playing Ball, including adopting the comedian's manner of speaking.

"I've had to put in an enormous amount of time on Lucille Ball right now, because she has a very particular way of speaking," Kidman said as per USA Today.
