Someone pop the champagne! This is going to be a riot.
Zelda Fitzgerald caught my attention over the years through various writings of her husband’s. I needed to know more. Who was this Zelda? Why was she so fascinating on pen to paper? And what was it like to be married to F. Scott Fitzgerald in one of the most interesting times in history?
The trailer for Z: The Beginning of Everything looks to address these questions as we discover the leading, lovely, and yes”lunatic lady” she came to be known as. The series, by Amazon Prime Video, will take us from the early years when she met Fitzgerald in Montgomery, to their courtship, marriage and the ensuing chaos and events that inspired so many novels.
Zelda was a curious being with a temper who couldn’t quite hold her tongue, let alone her booze.
She fancied jumping into fountains, absinthe, fur coats, and Juice Joints over a quiet lunch and afternoon tea with the ladies. She was also hailed as the first “flapper girl.” Christina Ricci will play the role of Zelda, so fingers crossed she nails this character.
Thank you, Amazon, for giving Zelda Fitzgerald the attention seldom seen in books too few and far in between.
I’m going to go do the Charleston and sip on some “giggle water” while I await this beautiful chaos that will be available in January. I’m dreaming of the 1920’s while I count down the days! Until then, look at the series poster below.
