Amazon’s Z: The Beginning of Everything Trailer: Christina Ricci Is Your New Zelda Fitzgerald

By

Because you’re always in the market for a swingin’ good costume drama, Amazon has conjured up a healthy flapper-costume budget for its new Jazz Age–set series, Z: The Beginning of Everything. Following the roaring life of Zelda Fitzgerald (a heavily accented Christina Ricci!) and her turbulent relationship with her husband, a certain F. Scott Fitzgerald, the first trailer somehow manages to make their fights look glamorous beside a plethora of Champagne flutes and Charleston dancers. Think of the Fitzgerald scenes from Midnight in Paris, but 50 percent grittier … and filmed in America. It’s set to premiere on January 27 on Amazon Prime.
