She’ s also someone who desires 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 allows her sister to make her own missteps and doesn’ t scold her for it. It’ s almost as if she’ s allowing Tiffany to figure out the mistakes onto her own since Sabrina their self, likely didn’ t possess anyone to tell her how not to ever make them as well.
The film is also generated by Janine Sherman Barrois, award-winning writer/producer and the showrunner on the TNT breakout hit Claws.
Jezebel explores 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.
