Wolfe Video has released the trailer for Stephen Cone‘s upcoming Princess Cyd starring Rebecca Spence, Jessie Pinnick, and Malic White. The film will open in New York and Chicago November 3rd, and will kick off an early career retrospective of Cone’s work at the Museum of Moving Image in NYC from November 3rd through the 12th.
16-year-old Cyd (Jessie Pinnick) decides to take a break from her depressive single father and spend a summer in Chicago with her aunt Miranda (Rebecca Spence), a well-known novelist. Soon after her arrival, Cyd encounters Katie (Malic White), a young barista behind the counter. The two make plans to meet up after Katie’s shift and a new, charged relationship begins. The Chicago landscape expands, and we navigate intimate and fragile moments between Cyd and Katie as they explore their new attraction. Miranda functions as a counterpart to young Cyd’s new explorations of sexuality and love, and as the summer continues they develop a strong relationship founded on a shared openness and healthy criticism of particular personal moments.
