Jezebel is a film which is not judgemental or even takes a affiliate with its protagonist, in fact , you empathize with young Jewelry, even though she’ s producing a myriad of bad decisions.

Jezebel is exploring a new kind of family way in a rich way and leaves the viewer to choose for themselves what is considered to be morally right and wrong.
