      Mike D'Angelo AV Club 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. Rated: B- Jul 20, 2020 Full Review Guy Lodge Guardian 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. Jul 20, 2020 Full Review Heather Hogan Autostraddle 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. Apr 20, 2018 Full Review Michael Cuby them. A sensitive indie that still induces laughs, Princess Cyd is an underrated gem well worth your time. Sep 26, 2022 Full Review Taylor Baker Drink in the Movies Episode Three: The Princesses, The Captain, The Fixer, & The Guns Rated: 60/100 Aug 22, 2021 Full Review Casey Cipriani Bustle 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. Nov 18, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      isla s This is quite a nice film, not too sexual so not especially graphic. I liked the way the friendship built between the two main characters. Its quite dialogue heavy but I liked it. The gay theme is covered in a sensitive way, in that it didn't feel exploitative or anything like that to me. I felt I could relate to the main character a little, in that I could understand her feeling awkward when she stood out. I liked it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a beautifully nuanced portrayal of a sassy young woman contrasted with her slightly pain-in-the-neck, hyper reflective, middle aged aunt. When I watch Steven Cone's films I think I am seeing real people. Having watched his three main films several times - alone and with friends - I can only wait in hope of his next. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review krysten k in a sea of lgbtq cringe, this is one of the greats. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/06/21 Full Review Audience Member so subtle and accurate, with complex characters. it made me laugh, it made me think and at some points it almost made me cry! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Pleasant little movie populated by refreshingly nice people, with nary a ne'er-do-well to be seen. With a minor exception, any tension is in there somewhere in coming-of-age bisexuality of two young women and a good-natured generation gap. Spence's character is a writer and literature professor like William Heard in "One True Thing," although a polar opposite: kind, unpretentious and secure. She's given to hosting poetry parties, but those are mercifully short. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Among one of the worst lesbian films I have seen. Atrocious acting and dialogue encompassed with no emotion or feeling between the characters. Just throw in some cliché and painfully awkward/unrealistic moments and slap on some sexual scenes and you have your movie that is mediocre at best. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
