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 looking for something she’ s misplaced over the years and fills that void connecting with confidential men on the internet. She’ s also someone who would like to prove her worth and value in spite of the circumstances that surround her — surviving in a small studio with her siblings and Sabrina’ s i9000 boyfriend. Sabrina also enables her sister to make her own missteps and doesn’ t scold her for doing it. It’ s almost like she’ s allowing Jewelry to figure out the mistakes onto her own since Sabrina their self, likely didn’ t include anyone to tell her how not to ever make them as well.
The film is also manufactured by Janine Sherman Barrois, award winning writer/producer and the showrunner with the TNT breakout hit Claws.
Jezebel is exploring a new kind of family variable in a rich way and leaves the viewer to choose for themselves what is considered to be morally right and wrong.
