Review: ‘ Gemini Man’ Weighs Technology Over Substance
Jezebel is a film that is not judgemental or even takes a affiliate with its protagonist, in fact , you empathize with young Jewelry xxx teens, even though she’ s producing a myriad of bad decisions.
Tiffany is trying to find something she’ s misplaced over the years and fills that void connecting with private 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 — moving into a small studio with her siblings and Sabrina’ s boyfriend. Sabrina also enables her sister to make her own missteps and doesn’ t scold her because of it. It’ s almost like she’ s allowing Tiffany 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 created by Janine Sherman Barrois, first-class writer/producer and the showrunner with the TNT breakout hit Paws.
Jezebel explores 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.
