Princess

When: Sat., Aug. 20 2016

Some indie films aim to tackle touchy subject material, but Tali Shalom-Ezer’s Princess is in a class all its own. Rife with ambiguous sexual references that blend seamlessly together with coming-of-age charm, the film is centered around a 12-year-old girl whose experiences with a mysterious boy and her mother’s abusive boyfriend come to define her early adolescent years. It also received Best Israeli Feature honors at the 2014 Israeli Film Festival. It screens tonight at 5 and tomorrow at 4:15 p.m. at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $10, $8 for Cinematheque members, students and seniors. (Shively)
