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 making a myriad of bad decisions.
Tiffany is searching for something she’ s dropped over the years and fills that void connecting with private men on the internet. She’ s also someone who wants to prove her worth and value in spite of the circumstances that surround her — moving into 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 doing it. It’ s almost as though she’ s allowing Tiffany to figure out the mistakes on her own since Sabrina their self, likely didn’ t possess anyone to tell her how to not make them as well.
The film is also created by Janine Sherman Barrois, award-winning writer/producer and the showrunner on the TNT breakout hit Claws.
Jezebel explores a new kind of family variable in a rich way and leaves the viewer to make the decision for themselves what is considered to be morally right and wrong.
