Princess Cyd defies coming-of-age convention to offer a sweetly understated - yet deeply resonant - look at pivotal relationships.

As comfortable to slip into as an afternoon in the sun, as satisfying as a late-night piece of cake, Princess Cyd is a jewel of a film that plumbs thematic depths far below its surface.
Sometimes the calm between these two women is realistic. But the director often cops out the second his characters get into messier emotions.
Its leisurely quality-its disinterest in "pumping" things up, its focus on the small yet vivid spaces of listening, understanding, struggle, identity-is its greatest asset.
What might have devolved into cutesy odd-couple territory instead moves in unexpected directions, bolstered by a fundamental idealism.
With great delicacy, Cone metes out details about his subjects through refined dialogue and everyday behavior; this is the sort of movie that makes you feel you've befriended the characters.
Not a lot happens in Princess Cyd, but it's hard not to watch this film without feeling changed.
The relationships that Cyd has with Katie and Miranda develop at that perfect pace for when time is short but the days are long.
Stephen Cone makes films which are religious in the best sense-through richly developed characters, his cinema touches the transcendent by way of the immanent.
It has a sense of authenticity which makes it stand-out from other teen dramas.
Cone's film is meek, irenic and sincere. It doesn't push a certain agenda onto the viewer, it doesn't intrude on the characters after they are introduced and it doesn't favor or side with one perspective or another.
Each Stephen Cone film is a gift.
"Happiness is unique." By capturing how women of two generations can share it while taking different paths to get there, the immense satisfaction that comes from "Princess Cyd" is quite distinct as well.
Anyone have a copy of "In the Dawn" I can borrow? I really need to know how that shakes out.
