Critic Reviews for Princess Cyd
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.
Audience Reviews for Princess Cyd
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.
Anyone have a copy of "In the Dawn" I can borrow? I really need to know how that shakes out.
