This Year's Must-See Movie
Nine years after a cryptic family disaster, 16-year-old Cyd arrives in Chicago to spend the summer with her aunt Miranda, a famous author. The film moves meditatively, as Cyd and Miranda come to understand each other and Cyd processes the losses in her family. Meanwhile, Cyd explores her gender and sexual identity with Katie, who she meets and quickly forms a close relationship with. Skillfully written and directed by Stephen Cone, Princess Cyd is a beautiful, ruminative exploration of romantic, familial, and self love.
Presentation of Princess Cyd is sponsored by RBC.
