Well-behaved women don’t make history, as the new trailer for Amazon’s forthcoming bio series Z: The Beginning of Everything reminds us.
Starring the sorely underutilized Christina Ricci, the series is a fictional take on the life of novelist, muse, and '20s icon Zelda Fitzgerald. The trailer takes us through Zelda’s highs: meeting her future husband, the champagne-filled prohibition days, and her overall charisma. And then it takes us right through the lows: her eventual downward spiral, marriage troubles, and... her husband stealing her work. Truly a love story for the ages.
From what we can glean, it looks like a fascinating take on a fascinating woman. Cheers to Zelda finally getting the attention history never gave her.
Subscribers can watch the first episode on Amazon Prime now, while the full 10-part series arrives January 27. It’s sure to be one boozy ride.
