WOLFE RELEASING ACQUIRES STEPHEN CONE’S COMING-OF-AGE DRAMA “PRINCESS CYD”

Wolfe Releasing has announced today that it has acquired director Stephen Cone’s PRINCESS CYD, starring Rebecca Spence (Joe Swanberg’s “Easy”) and Jessie Pinnick (“Shameless”), for a theatrical and digital release later this year. The Chicago-set coming-of-age drama will have its World Premiere at the 2017 Maryland Film Festival on Thursday, May 4, followed by a screening at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s BAMcinemaFest in June.

PRINCESS CYD marks an ongoing relationship between Cone and Wolfe, following their release of his acclaimed dramas HENRY GAMBLE’S BIRTHDAY PARTY (which also had its world premiere at the Maryland Film Festival) and THE WISE KIDS. The film was produced by Grace Hahn, Madison Ginsberg and Stephen Cone.

PRINCESS CYD follows 16-year-old athlete Cyd Loughlin (Pinnick) while visiting her novelist aunt (Spence) in Chicago over the summer. Eager to escape life with her depressive single father, Cyd falls for a girl in the neighborhood, while she and her aunt gently challenge each other in the realms of sex and spirit.

The deal was negotiated by Jim Stephens, President of Wolfe Releasing and Stephen Cone.

“It is impossible to overstate how important the faith and support from Wolfe Releasing has been to my development as a filmmaker over the past several years,” Cone said. “This kind of partnership is a dream and a pleasure.”

Stephens commented, “We are thrilled to work with Stephen again. He is a wonderfully talented filmmaker and has a unique voice in a crowded field of independent cinema.”
