CYRANO (124 PG-13)

CYRANO

SUMMARY

In this re-imagining of 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.).

REVIEW

"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."
