The Right Side of Paradise
18 April 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

F Scott Fitzgerald is in New York trying to be a published author. In the meant time he hates working in advertising. Copywriting for cigarettes is not his thing.

Zelda is not short of male pursuers. When she is bored, she and her friends demonstrate for female emancipation or hang outside brothels in the evenings to embarrass the young visitors.

Of course the moment arrives that Judge Anthony Sayre fears. Fitzgerald's work gets published and this will drive Zelda to New York.

It is only now in Episode 3 you feel that the series is kicking off.

The individual episode length might only be 30 minutes. The production values might be high but so far it felt that the story was not going anywhere.
