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 Tiffany, even though she’ s producing a myriad of bad decisions.
Tiffany is seeking out something she’ s lost over the years and fills that void connecting with unknown men on the internet. She’ s also someone who wishes to prove her worth and value in spite of the circumstances that surround her — surviving 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 because of it. It’ s almost as if she’ s allowing Jewelry to figure out the mistakes on her behalf own since Sabrina little, likely didn’ t have anyone to tell her how not to make them as well.
The film is also produced by Janine Sherman Barrois, award-winning writer/producer and the showrunner on the TNT breakout hit Paws.
Jezebel is exploring a new kind of family pattern in a rich way and leaves the viewer to determine for themselves what is considered to be morally right and wrong.
