Movie Info

16-year-old Cyd (Jessie Pinnick) decides to take a break from her depressive single father and spend a summer in Chicago with her aunt Miranda (Rebecca Spence), a well-known novelist. Soon after her arrival, Cyd encounters Katie (Malic White), a young barista behind the counter. The two make plans to meet up after Katie’s shift and a new, charged relationship begins. The Chicago landscape expands, and we navigate intimate and fragile moments between Cyd and Katie as they explore their new attraction. Miranda functions as a counterpart to young Cyd’s new explorations of sexuality and love, and as the summer continues they develop a strong relationship founded on a shared openness and healthy criticism of particular personal moments. Sensitive to the contradictions and confusion of the ever-changing self, Stephen Cone has created a film that reimagines that distinct summer feeling when adolescence creeps in, skin is bared, emotions emerge, and everything begins to feel more complicated.

Princess Cyd is one of those films in which the artifice of filmmaking almost drops away and you start to feel like you know Cyd and Miranda.

Anchored by complicated, smart, funny women, Princess Cyd is a rare delight of a film and a model for others to follow.

Cone’s film has little more than its heart in the right place.

I can think of no higher compliment than that the film’s warmth and generosity reminded me of the late Jonathan Demme.
