We all know the answer to this question but let’s ask it anyway. Any Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald fans out there? Yes, we thought so! Amazon Prime has brought us the premiere of Z: the Beginning of Everything. A story that portrays the life of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, the beautiful Southern Belle who was labeled an icon of the Jazz Age.

Z: the Beginning of Everything’s Storyline and Characters

Described today as a prime example of an individual who embodies the famous line, “Well-behaved women seldom make history” Zelda Sayre’s life is brought into motion picture. She is the lover to the man himself, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Business Insider describes the couple’s love as one of the most legendary love stories of all time. Dare we argue? I think not!

Christina Ricci and David Hoflin retell the love story of Zelda Sayre and F. Scott Fitzgerald. We see how they met in 1918 and their rise to becoming celebrities. Under the direction of Tom Blake Nelson and Mike Baker this drama is brought to us, courtesy of Amazon Studios. The famous writer and he’s beloved, who also happens to be his muse are really portrayed excellently in this drama series that will unfold before our eyes soon. Although we know that Zelda’s life ends in an unfortunate tragedy, we cannot dismiss the beauty and intelligence she brought during her time. The story picks up in Montgomery where she meets a man who would become her husband down the line. The LA Time’s describe her life as “short, fabulous and eventually circumscribed”.
