“Joe Wright’s splendid new adaptation presents CYRANO as 21st-century MGM musical… With its swooping cameras and beyond-dazzling production design, one of the medium’s most visionary craftsmen has outdone himself.” — Variety

A man ahead of his time, Cyrano de Bergerac (a delightful 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.). Award-winning director Joe Wright (DARKEST HOUR, ATONEMENT, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE) crafts an exuberant and enchanting re-imagining of the timeless tale of love and heartbreak.
