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.

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.

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.

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