Review: ‘ Gemini Man’ Weighs Technology Over Substance
Jezebel is a film which 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 searching for something she’ s misplaced over the years and fills that void connecting with private men on the internet. She’ s also someone who wishes to prove her worth and value in spite of the circumstances that surround her — moving into a small studio with her siblings and Sabrina’ ersus boyfriend. Sabrina also enables her sister to make her own missteps and doesn’ t scold her for doing it. It’ s almost as if she’ s allowing Tiffany to figure out the mistakes onto her own since Sabrina herself, likely didn’ t include anyone to tell her how to not make them as well.
The film is also manufactured by Janine Sherman Barrois, award winning writer/producer and the showrunner in the TNT breakout hit Paws.
Jezebel is exploring a new kind of family way in a rich way and leaves the viewer to decide for themselves what is considered to be morally right and wrong.
