Princess Cyd (2016)

While it isn’t about gay cowboys eating pudding, this is very much what people think of when they think of an indie movie. It has female protagonists, it deals with trauma, it features bisexual and gender non-conformist characters, it’s multicultural and there are prolonged discussions about fascinating/important issues. This could have felt like a bunch of topics or issues being checked off of a list. Instead it is one of the best films of last year. The characters are so well-drawn that you cannot help but care for them, and the whole thing is directed with the perfect balance of beauty and unobtrusiveness. I’m so glad to have finally caught up with it.
