Storyline

Z is a biography series based on the life of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, the brilliant, beautiful and talented Southern Belle who becomes the original flapper and icon of the wild, flamboyant Jazz Age in the 20s. Starring Christina Ricci (Monster) as Zelda Fitzgerald, Z starts before she meets the unpublished writer F. Scott Fitzgerald (David Hoflin), and moves through their passionate, turbulent love affair and their marriage-made in heaven, lived out in hell as the celebrity couple of their time. The series travels through the wild parties, the wicked jazz, the dissolute artists of the era, as well as the alcoholism, adultery and struggle with dashed dreams and mental illness that characterizes their later years.

Christina Ricci as Zelda is a bizarre choice. She is almost 20 years older than what Zelda would have been at the time this story takes place. I could understand someone 5-8 years older, but 20, No. She is not able to play a teenager and looks more a matron than a flapper. Granted she is an attractive women, but a teenager she is not. This is a compete waist of time.
