Award-winning director Joe Wright envelops moviegoers in a symphony of emotions with music, romance, and beauty in CYRANO, re-imagining the timeless tale of a heartbreaking love triangle. A man ahead of his time, Cyrano de Bergerac (Peter Dinklage) dazzles whether with ferocious wordplay at a verbal joust or with brilliant swordplay in a duel. But, convinced that his appearance renders him unworthy of the love of a devoted friend, the luminous Roxanne (Haley Bennett), Cyrano has yet to declare his feelings for her — and Roxanne has fallen in love, at first sight, with Christian (Kelvin Harrison, Jr.).
PG-13, 124 mins.
"Dinklage gives you his appeal and his sense of self-loathing. It's both the single most sorrowful and the sexiest take on Cyrano you've ever seen." – Rolling Stone
"An old-school enchanter with an enormous heart, one that reinforces Dinklage as a dazzling talent that can lead and illuminate any genre." – RogerEbert.com
"Almost every shot is framed like a Renaissance painting, and the songs, by members of indie-rock stalwarts the National, have an earnest, orchestral tunefulness." – Entertainment Weekly
"Dinklage saves the day, being worldly, wry, and mournfully amused at the cruelties of fate. Even his swordplay has a comic agility; talk about a rapier wit." – New Yorker
