Critic Reviews for Princess Cyd

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (40) | Rotten (2)

  • So many movies are all sizzle and no steak; it's kind of refreshing, in a way, to be frustrated by all steak and no sizzle.

    July 20, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Stephen Cone's Princess Cyd is a soft-treading beauty, warm, light and perceptive on fragile questions of feminine sexuality, gender identity and finding your place in your skin.

    July 20, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Princess Cyd is quiet almost to the point of stillness and deeply generous. It believes women will heal each other and their communities. It hopes.

    April 20, 2018 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    December 3, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Sometimes the calm between these two women is realistic. But the director often cops out the second his characters get into messier emotions.

    November 30, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 3, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

    December 3, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Cyd's summer is more about exploration than catching up on the latest bestsellers. The film examines Cyd's sexual fluidity with the greatest of ease and her conversations with her aunt are revelatory for a movie starring women.

    November 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • In an era in which so many people struggle to find their true self, Princess Cyd is a beautifully-made film that should encourage people to know that it is better to live authentically than to live a lie.

Audience Reviews for Princess Cyd

  • Apr 28, 2019
    A mediocre coming-of-age film, Princess Cyd is pretty bland. The story follows a young teenage girl who goes to visit her estranged aunt, an acclaimed novelist, and learns to appreciate her cultured lifestyle. The script isn't written very well and isn't quite sure whose journey this is; the aunt's or the niece's. And the directing is fairly mundane, doing nothing to heighten the drama or add any tension. Princess Cyd is a forgettable film that's rather boring and unremarkable.
