Review: ‘ Gemini Man’ Weighs Technology Over Substance
Jezebel is a film that is not judgemental or even takes a affiliate with its protagonist, in fact , you empathize with young Jewelry, even though she’ s making a myriad of bad decisions.
Tiffany is looking for something she’ s dropped over the years and fills that void connecting with nameless men on the internet. She’ s also someone who desires to prove her worth and value in spite of the circumstances that surround her — residing in a small studio with her siblings and Sabrina’ t boyfriend. Sabrina also permits her sister to make her own missteps and doesn’ t scold her for this. It’ s almost as if she’ s allowing Jewelry to figure out the mistakes on her own since Sabrina little, likely didn’ t have anyone to tell her how not to make them as well.
The film is also manufactured by Janine Sherman Barrois, first-class writer/producer and the showrunner from the TNT breakout hit Claws.
Jezebel is exploring a new kind of family way in a rich way and leaves the viewer to choose for themselves what is considered to be morally right and wrong.
