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