Princess is a heart-warming drama-comedy about overweight 18 year old Maja, whose size makes it difficult for her to be socially accepted and to make her dreams come true. It is an intimate story about people and their dreams - unfulfilled, suppressed and lost. About waiting for the world around you to fulfill your dreams vs. finding happiness in who you are, no matter what reality you live in.Written by
Really enjoyed this Swedish film. It is well-written, in that it has a good moral compass and achieves the message very thoroughly with fine acting. Zandra Andersson was superb IMHO, playing an actress within the film is no easy task and dealing with issues of physical appearance must have been challenging. Bravo! The supporting cast is more than adequate, especially the performance of Anastasios Soulis and Moa Silén. The American title is "Starring Maja" (Swedish title "Princessa"). I thoroughly enjoyed this film because it also doesn't leave you hanging, it comes to a full, definite conclusion, therefore well-written. Sweden keeps coming out with these great films every year! Keep it up! Jätte bra!
